Community, What's On

The Southern Health and Social Care Trust is hosting a special service of remembrance for patients, clients and staff who have died.

It takes place on on Tuesday 20th  February, 2018 at 7.30pm in Seagoe Parish Centre, Portadown.



Organised by the Chaplaincy Team, Human Resources and Bereavement Coordinator the event aims to give people the chance to reflect on and remember their colleagues and loved ones.

Anne Coyle, Bereavement Co-ordinator for the Southern Trust explained, “Sadly because of the nature of our work in health and social care, our staff experience death quite often.

“Whilst as professionals, we are trained to deal with end of life situations, many of us would welcome the opportunity, on a personal level, to take this time to pay tribute to patients, clients and indeed colleagues who have passed away.



“We warmly invite any friends, relatives or carers of our colleagues and patients who have died to join us in this service of remembrance and everyone is welcome.

Anne added, “As a tribute to patients and staff, the service will include a time of reflection where the names of those we have gathered to remember will be read. A floral tribute will be created and for this you may wish to bring a flower.” 

Music will be provided by Trust staff and the choir ‘Cantare’ led by Trust Chaplain Rev. Derek Dunn.



If you would like the name of a colleague or loved one read out during the service or for any other information, contact Anne Coyle, Bereavement Co-ordinator Tel: 028 3756 0085.

Venue Address: Seagoe Parish Centre, 46 Seagoe Road, Portadown, BT63 5HW.
