We would like to offer our heartfelt condolences to anyone who has suffered a bereavement recently. You are very welcome to book an appointment with a GP if you need bereavement support. Alternatively, we have compiled a list of some support services that you may find useful.

Grief and Loss Support Service

The West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership Grief and Loss Service offers information and advice to anyone struggling with feelings of loss, whether as a result of bereavement or other loss such as loss of a way of life, normal contact opportunities, social and work interactions.
