The Butterfly Bereavement Suite

Better visitor care made possible through charitable funding of facilities refurbishment

The Butterfly Bereavement Suite is a dedicated facility in the Emergency Department at Queen Alexandra Hospital. Following a successful appeal, charitable funds have been used to redevelop a tired, clinical area previously used as an overflow bed, into a private area for families to say goodbye to their loved ones.
We recognise losing a family member or loved one is a very challenging time. The Butterfly Bereavement offers glimpse of home comforts in a quiet area away from the department. Every detail within the suite has been carefully considered with visitors in mind, from the colour palette and soft furnishings, through to the local photography hung on the wall.
Without the support of those from the local community and beyond this wouldn’t have been possible – thank you.
