Support and Assistance

The PALS Bereavement Service provides sympathetic information, advice and support to bereaved relatives and carers by helping them through the practical arrangements that follow the death of an adult patient at the hospital.

The team can help you deal with issues such as:

We are located in The Evelyn Centre (Area R) at Northampton General Hospital and can be contacted Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 4.30pm on the numbers shown below. An answer phone service is available out of hours and we will respond to messages as soon as we can.
