Family Bereavement Service

exp date isn't null, but text field is

The hospital Child Bereavement Service is a service commissioned by the NHS, funded by the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity and provided by Child Bereavement UK.

It provides free support by trained Bereavement Support Practitioners.

Support for families

We support families being cared for by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde or who have input from the Royal Hospital Children and who are experiencing:

  • A miscarriage / still birth
  • The death of a baby
  • The death of a child (up to 18 years)
  • A situation where a baby or child is not expected to live

We provide support sessions for individuals, couples, siblings and families. (Due to Covid19 these currently happen via telephone, video or Walk and Talk)

There is also a parents and carers support group (Currently running fortnightly via Zoom.)

Support for staff

We also offer 1:1 support for staff who are struggling to deal with a death at work or personally and provide staff debriefs on request.

We have an open-door staff drop-in for staff seeking an ad-hoc chat for support at our room in the ground floor atrium of the RHC.

We offer training in Bereavement Awareness, staff resilience and other specialist training relating to Bereavement.
