Hear for You

A Covid-19 Support Line for Calderdale
Like many of you, Overgate wants to do everything we can to help the local fight against Covid-19. We are hearing so many stories of families who have lost loved ones in the most desperate circumstances. Supporting people through bereavement is something that we do every day at Overgate and we know how important the right support is when you are overwhelmed with grief. Our team have the skills and experience to be there for these families.

We also know the intense emotional strain the outbreak is having on our health and social care colleagues; the doctors, nurses, care workers who are working on the front line in this fight. 

In response to this, working with the local Clinical Commissioning Group, we have launched a new telephone support and advice service from Monday 20th April 2020. Our team will be just a phone call away, ready to listen and provide support to the following people:

 
- Relatives of patients being cared-for in any health or social care facility in relation to COVID-19

- All relatives of end-of-life patients

- Bereaved relatives who can only attend funerals at the crematorium or burial in restricted numbers

- Any health professional providing a frontline service in response to COVID-19
 


Our phone lines are open seven days a week from 10am until 6pm.
