COVID-19 has taught us not to wait for help with grief
Debbie Ripley Regional manager, Marie Curie London
You can help nursing colleagues and teams cope with death and dying by signposting to information and support
In the London nursing service at Marie Curie we have lost one colleague in recent months, and others in the team have lost friends and family. Not all the deaths were due to COVID-19, but the impact of being unable to attend a funeral or have a proper celebration of the lives of friends or loved ones has been unbearably difficult.
