Sudden bereavement support

We can support practices where a senior member has died suddenly.


About our offer

The sudden passing of a friend or colleague can be a difficult and traumatic experience, which may be made harder to cope with given the pressures of continuing to run a busy general practice.

This immediate support is funded by NHS England following the sudden death of a key practice member; such as a partner or practice manager whose impact on the practice is considered to be critical.

The RCGP have selected a small team of advisers from our Primary Care Development programme and trained them to provide practical operational support and be a voice for the practice as they navigate a difficult and destabilising time. This work is supported by the mental health service provided by Practitioner Health.

This support is provided at no cost to the practice.
