A hospital wants to hear from anyone who has experienced bereavement there in the past year ... to help improve its services.

The Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn wants to make sure it is offering enough support to family and friends when a loved one dies.

Relatives can give their views by phone or in a short written questionnaire, and will be invited to a meeting in May where bereaved relatives support will be explored in more depth.

Beverley Watson, medical director and executive lead for End of Life Care, said: “This is a really important initiative being undertaken by the Trust.

“Every year a number of people in the local area will pass away in our hospital so it is important we get things right, offering support and comfort not only for the patient but their family and friends during this time.”
