The aim of this services is to ensure that families have the appropriate support in their grief, this support may take many forms and the responsibility of this service is to identify what support families may require and may include:

  • Answering question the family has
  • Facilitating a family meeting with the appropriate clinicians
  • Referral to an appropriate service

The optional follow-up process is firstly discussed with all families by BCS staff while they are at Middlemore Hospital.
