National Bereavement Care Pathway: Time flies...

Can it really be 9 months since the first NBCP blog? I’d like to thank so many people who have supported us over that time. There are too many to name and I would hate to leave anyone out!

Looking back at the monthly blogs shows just how far the project has come.
