We would always request that you take your loved ones property home with you at the earliest opportunity: however, we understand that this may not always be possible.
If the property is brought to the bereavement office, it will be sorted, itemised and any soiled items will be disposed of. The bereavement assistant will then contact you at the earliest opportunity to discuss what property we have, if you would like the property home or if it can be disposed of.
If you choose to have the property home this can be collected from the bereavement office (by appointment only) or you could ask your chosen funeral director to collect the items on your behalf as this may be a service they are willing to offer depending on the amount of property being held.
Please be aware that if there are any property items missing or were misplaced on the ward where your loved one was a patient, you will need to contact the ward directly to discuss this. Unfortunately the bereavement service cannot be held responsible for any items that have not been received by the bereavement office.
