The Covid-19 pandemic has put a spotlight on end of life care and bereavement support and during the first wave of the pandemic NHS South West London Clinical Commissioning Group set up an end of life care response group and a working group focused on bereavement support for residents in south west London. It was agreed to pilot the development of a framework to help engage with residents in the borough affected by bereavement and understand the support needs for people.
The aim of this community engagement is to better understand the needs of people who are affected by bereavement. This survey is designed to be inclusive of all kinds of loss; for example, expected or sudden deaths, miscarriages or death of children and young people. It is relevant to anyone affected by a bereavement or supporting someone through grief – before and during the pandemic (inclusive of deaths related to and not related to Covid-19). We are keen to learn your views.
