for patients of Fownhope Medical Centre
At some time in our lives we will suffer loss, and developing ways of coping with loss can be difficult.
For a while our doctors and staff have been concerned that there is insufficient care and support offered to those who have been bereaved. We have introduced a new service which we hope will bridge the gap providing support relevant to each individual need.
Sarah Coomer is our bereavement support worker attached to the surgery. She is able to provide, on a voluntary basis, a range of options for those experiencing loss. These may help individuals struggling to cope or provide signposting to alternative support agencies.
Sarah has many years of experience as a professional in the NHS and has undertaken training in bereavement care. She can offer time to talk about feelings, worries or questions in total confidence.
How to access the service
Please contact the surgery reception on 01432 860235 and we will pass your name and number on to Sarah Coomer who will contact you to arrange a convenient time to talk.
All conversations are entirely confidential and can be over the telephone, or at Fownhope Medical Centre by arrangement.
There is no charge for this service.
