Carole McKeeman is the Western Trust Bereavement Coordinator who works with staff to promote bereavement care, standards and training across the Trust and can be contacted at 028 7134 5171 ext 214184 or by email on carole.mckeeman@westerntrust.hscni.net.

The Western Trust’s Bereavement Booklet ‘When Someone Close To You Dies’ contains practical information which may be useful to you in the days ahead. Helpful information on living and coping with bereavement and a list of relevant support agencies is also included.

The Trust holds remembrance services annually for the parents and families of children and babies who have died and also for the relatives and friends of those who have died in ICU / HDU. The dates for these services will be posted on the website site and in the local press once confirmed.

A Book of Remembrance for babies and children is available in both Altnagelvin Hospital and South West Acute Hospital, Enniskillen. Many parents and family members choose to write some words in memory of their child which is then included in the book. If you would like to do this or to view the books of Remembrance please contact the Trust Bereavement Coordinator or contact the maternity wards in Altnagelvin Hospital or South West Acute Hospital, Enniskillen.
