If your loved one has died at St George’s, the Bereavement Services team are here to help you. We can guide you through the necessary steps following your bereavement. We also work with clinical teams to ensure that all necessary steps are taken, and paperwork completed.

Please call us at your earliest convenience on 020 8725 3410 or 020 8725 3411. The office is open between 9:00 and 16:00, Monday to Friday. Outside of those times you can leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as we can. You can also contact us via email at Bereavement.Services@stgeorges.nhs.uk

Full information is available in the booklet ‘A practical guide for when someone dies’ which is available here. There is also information available which we hope will provide support during the pandemic.

Support from other organisations may be helpful at this time. Below is a list of just some of these groups, some of which can also provide help before bereavement.
