Bereavement and dealing with loss
Dealing with the loss of a loved one, no matter what the relationship with that person, can be one of the most difficult things that we have to deal with. At Marylebone Health Centre there are ways we can help and support you as you grieve and deal with loss, whether the person who died was a patient with us or not.
You can make an appointment with the GP.
