To ask the Scottish Government what support is available to NHS staff so that they can best direct bereaved parents under the age of 25 to appropriate support.

Answered by: Joe FitzPatrick 8 November 2018

The NHS Education for Scotland (NES) website ‘Support Around Death’, provides health professionals across Scotland with a range of resources on bereavement care after pregnancy loss, stillbirth or neonatal death, including short animated educational films. An e-learning resource on bereavement following pregnancy loss and the death of a baby is available on the Knowledge Network and provides in-depth education for maternity care professionals.
