Death in Service

In the unfortunate event of a death in service, the Trust recognises the need to balance sensitivity with the practical need to administer pay arrangements during a difficult and emotional time for the next of kin.

The following policy outlines the steps the Trust will undertake to meet the needs of employees and next of kin where there has been a death in service. It is designed to ensure that in all cases the Trust employs consistency in these matters as well as assisting managers with guidance.
