To ask the Scottish Government what support is provided to families that have a sudden bereavement as a result of an accident.
Answered by: Shona Robison 21 November 2017
A sudden bereavement will have a wide range of practical, social and emotional consequences, short and long term, for those affected, including families. Information of assistance to people in such circumstances has been brought together on the NHS Inform website and can be found at https://www.nhsinform.scot/care-support-and-rights/death-and-bereavement/practical-advice-after-a-death
It also signposts people to additional sources of support.
