COVID-19 specific bereavement resources

Since it was launched in 2015 by NHS Education for Scotland, the Support Around Death (SAD) website has provided resources and training for professionals who work with the bereaved in Scotland. During COVID-19, the site has been expanded to include support resources specifically focused on COVID-19 related death and bereavement. This is to ensure staff have access to tailored guides and resources for these unprecedented times. NHS Education for Scotland were concerned that information developed pre-COVID-19 may not be fully relevant to the current working environment. COVID-19 Bereavement resources are available on the dedicated webpage of the SAD website.
