For the second year in a row the annual BTH Baby Remembrance Service is being shared virtually.
This year the service includes a range of poems, information and powerful stories from colleagues at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals and our partner organisations across the area.
The video is now available to watch, but we would also encourage you to join us by watching it at 3pm on Sunday if you’re available – the traditional time for the service to take place.
Megan Murray, Bereavement Specialist Nurse at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals, said: “We know so many people take comfort from this annual service, and it’s great we’ve been able to continue to make it available despite some of the restrictions we’re facing.
“Hopefully we will be back to holding it in person next year, but in the meantime we hope people take comfort in our lovely virtual service.
Jackie Brunton, Lead Nurse End of Life & Bereavement Care at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals, said “This week is National Grief Awareness Week and it’s important for people to know they’re not alone. While we often can’t come together as we would have done previously, there is still plenty we can do to help our colleagues, families, patients, friends and neighbours.
“The theme this year for the awareness week is to carry out these small but important gestures like putting the kettle on if you know someone struggling, or check in on your neighbours.”
The Trust’s annual Tree of Lights service is also being shared virtually this year, and can be seen here.
