The Medical Examiner service was rolled out across the NHS in England from 2019 with the aim of improving death certification and ensuring that bereaved families and friends are kept at the centre of the process. By introducing this new service, the NHS aims to provide an opportunity for the bereaved to ask questions about the cause of death and discuss the care that their friend or relative received.

We offer support and treatment if you’re experiencing problems such as low mood, stress, anxiety, panic attacks or difficulty sleeping.

We can work with you if you have post-natal depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, phobias, or eating difficulties. We can also help you to manage the emotional impact of a long-term physical health problem, or chronic pain.
