The UHMBT bereavement service spans the final hours, weeks and months of a person’s life; as well as the actual day of death and services for grieving relatives. It brings together staff ranging from porters to consultants and extends to partners such as the police, the voluntary sector and the coroner’s office. We provide-

  • Books for Children

  • Locks of Hair
  • Hand casts
  • Prints for jewellery
  • Sudden loss cafes
  • Remembrance service
  • Bereavement bags for property
  • Comfort packs for dying patients and their visitors
  • Forget me not seeds

We have offices at Royal Lancaster Infirmary and Furness General and we are open Monday - Friday. Our bereavement nurses and staff are available to discuss issues and offer help and support over the phone.

We provide this service with the backing of the families and community we serve, raising money to ensure the best possible assistance for families. We would love your help, please contact bereavement.office@mbht.nhs.uk or call 01524 512406.
