Mullan welcomes new Altnagelvin bereavement suite
Foyle Sinn Féin MLA Karen Mullan has welcomed the official opening of the North’s first bereavement suite, sited at Altnagelvin Hospital.
The facility has been funded and opened by Sands, the Stillbirth and neonatal death charity.
Karen Mullan commented: “I would like to congratulate the Sands charity for funding the Lavendar Suite at Altnagelvin Hospital.
“Sadly we all know someone, a family or friend who have lost a child.
“It's a totally traumatic experience for everybody, but particularly for the parents.
“To have a quiet space in the hospital such as this suite will go some way to help everyone affected at an extremely difficult time.
“I would like to commend SANDS Charity, the Trust and the parents who came together and made this new Suite possible.
