Advice/feedback: Bereavement Office

The Bereavement Office is located in the main Hillingdon Hospital building, next to the Cashiers' Office.

Telephone number: 01895 279354
Opening times: Monday-Friday, 9m-4pm

We endeavour to contact the relatives of deceased patients at the earliest opportunity, usually on the next working day, following a death in the hospital. We prepare the required paperwork which is sent directly to the registrar’s office at the London Borough of Hillingdon. The bereavement office will contact relatives to advise if patients property needs to be collected.

We offer information and assistance to enable the relatives to move forward with the legal requirements and funeral arrangements that are necessary. We also look after the affairs and funeral arrangements for patients who unfortunately die with no known next of kin.

Information and advice for bereaved relatives of Covid 19 patients

Death of a loved one is always a difficult and emotional experience. During the Covid 19 pandemic this has been even more challenging. The necessary but difficult restrictions on hospital visiting, and the increasing numbers of people and households needing to self isolate or socially distance from friends and family, makes this the grieving process all the more tough.

We have a collected some resources that may help you during this period.
