Every year, people around the country use Dying Matters Awareness Week as a moment to encourage each other to get talking about dying, in whatever way, shape or form works for them. In 2023, Dying Matters Awareness Week will take place from 8 – 14 May.

This Dying Matters Week we are talking about death, dying and grief in the workplace.

Two members of the St John’s Hospice team, Emma (Head of Inpatient Services) and Charlotte (Community Palliative Care Clinical Nurse Specialist) have made a short video to offer you some guidance and support when welcoming a colleague back to the workplace who has experienced a bereavement. We hope you find their chat useful.

Please share this video so that together we can all be part of a compassionate community.
