About Bereavement Support

Where we are

The Florence Nightingale Hospice Bereavement Listening and Support Service is based at:

Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust
Florence Nightingale Hospice
Stoke Mandeville Hospital
HP21 8AL

Tel: 01296 332600

Email: FNH.Bereavement@buckshealthcare.nhs.uk

Who we are for

We are a free NHS service providing bereavement support:

  • to anyone who is a relative of a patient who has specialist palliative care based at Florence Nightingale Hospice
  • or to anyone registered with a Buckinghamshire GP, irrespective of age, gender, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, or racial group.

How we can help you

We can:

  • Provide support on a one-to-one basis.
  • We can arrange to support people either at home or at one of our NHS buildings in Buckinghamshire. This will be discussed and agreed before the first appointment. The number of appointments depends on the need and is determined by the client.
  • Support you for as long as you find it helpful.
  • Liaise with clinicians if you have any questions about NHS healthcare.

The service is headed by an NHS professional and staffed by volunteers who all have basic training in Bereavement Support and who receive regular supervision and ongoing training.
