A new service is being offered to friends and family who have lost loved ones at the Southern General Hospital.
A Time To Remember is organised by the Hospital Chaplains at The Southern General Hospital and takes place on the third Thursday of the month at 7pm in the Chaplaincy Centre at The Southern.
The service is open to anyone and everyone who has lost a loved one at the hospital.It lasts about 25 minutes with readings and music, people can submit names to be remembered and light candles in their memory
Hospital chaplins often meet with families to offer support and care during bereavement.However as Hospital Chaplain Blair Robertson explained:"It's a sad fact that every year many people die in hospital leaving families and friends carrying a burden of sadness and grief.This is an opportunity for people to remember, to be quiet with their memories and to feel supported.
"There are many people who find the journey of bereavement difficult - they probably don't need bereavement counselling but many people appreciate some time and space to remember and tell their stories.This is what we are offering in A Time To Remember and we know that is has been of benefit already."
