*IMPORTANT PATIENT NOTICE*

As a result of the recent temporary closure of a local practice and the subsequent influx of nearly 600 patients registering with us we have taken the decision to temporarily close our list from the 1st September 2016 until 31st August 2017 , which in effect means we will not be registering any new patients during this time, at which point we will review our position. LIST RE-OPENS ON 1ST SEPTEMBER 2017

The only exception will be existing patients who are registered with us and a direct family member wishes to also register and who are living in the same household or within our boundary. For those patients that sit outside this criteria please got to NHS Choices: http://www.nhs.uk/pages/home.aspx where you will be able to find other practices in our locality  of which there are several.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused and be assured we have taken this decision to allow us to review our current staffing resource and to identify any additional staffing support we may need; this is essentially to ensure we support our staff with the correct levels of resources so we may continue to provide continuity of care to our patients.

In Times of Bereavement

In the unfortunate event that a person has passed away, there are three things that must be done in the first few days;

  • Get a medical certificate from your GP or hospital doctor (this is necessary to register the death)
  • Register the death within 5 days (8 days in Scotland). You will then receive the necessary documents for the funeral.
  • Make the necessary funeral arrangements.

Register the death

If the death has been reported to the coroner (or Procurator Fiscal in Scotland) they must give permission before registering the death.

You can register the death if you are a relative, a witness to the death, a hospital administrator or the person making the arrangements with the funeral directors.

You can use the ‘Register a Death’ page on the gov.uk website that will guide you through the process. This will also explain the registration process for Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Arrange the funeral

The funeral can usually only take place after the death is registered. Most people use a funeral director, though you can arrange a funeral yourself.

Funeral directors

Choose a funeral director who’s a member of one of the following:

These organisations have codes of practice - they must give you a price list when asked.

Some local councils run their own funeral services, for example for non-religious burials. The British Humanist Association can also help with non-religious funerals.

Arranging the funeral yourself

Contact the Cemeteries and Crematorium Department of your local council to arrange a funeral yourself.

Funeral costs

Funeral costs can include:

  • funeral director fees
  • things the funeral director pays for on your behalf (called ‘disbursements’ or ‘third-party costs’), for example, crematorium or cemetery fees, or a newspaper announcement about the death
  • local authority burial or cremation fees

Funeral directors may list all these costs in their quotes.
