Bereavement helpline opens for Solihull residents affected by the Coronavirus pandemic

Solihull Editorial 6th May, 2020   0

A NEW Bereavement helpline has opened up for Solihull residents during the Coronavirus pandemic.

The line is aimed at helping those who feel isolated after suffering a loss during the lockdown.

The line – available on 0121 687 8010 – is available from 9am to 5pm Monday, Wednesday, Friday and between 9am and 8pm Tuesday and Thursday.

It will also open from midday to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday from June 1.




Dr Angela Brady, Deputy Chief Medical Officer at NHS Birmingham and Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “Losing a loved one is always difficult, but for those who live alone or are cut off from their usual support network, it can be extremely difficult.

“It is important to remember that taking care of our mental and emotional wellbeing during the pandemic is just as important as our physical health. “Being able to talk to someone in a time of need can help alleviate some of the stress and grief that comes with losing a relative or friend.”
