Swan Suite Bereavement Centre - Royal Oldham

The service performs a variety of administrative functions following the death of a patient, for example, it arranges for the issuing of the Medical Cause of Death Certificate and other bereavement related paperwork to the next of kin and liaises with outside agencies.

The certificate will be prepared for you as quickly as possible; this could take up to 48 hours. If the death occurred at the weekend, then this would be the next working day. Please nominate one family member to liaise with the Bereavement Office. Please ring after 10:00am where a Bereavement Officer will provide you with information regarding the next steps.
