Dealing with bereavement

Our sepsis support nurses understand only too well how quickly sepsis can kill and how devastating such a tragic loss can be. We are here to help you understand what happened to your loved one and to try and answer your questions. Talk to us by calling our sepsis helpline or contacting us by email.

There are also several bereavement charities that can offer specialist advice and support to adults and children that have lost someone close to them.
