2021 Bereavement Webinar Series

NHS Education for Scotland (NES) began a monthly webinar series in 2020, covering various death and bereavement-related topics developed for health and social care professionals. These sessions are providing an opportunity to hear from a subject expert and also engage in a Q+A. Over 1,300 people have registered to date with positive feedback having been received.

“Excellent presentations and very topical…”

“Well paced, relevant, credible, thank you…”

“Very informative webinar”

This page will be updated with upcoming webinar session details as they are confirmed. The first webinar of 2021 is likely to be held in March.

POSTPONED NES Bereavement Education Conference

24 February 2021 

The Changing Face of Bereavement: Providing care and maintaining our own wellbeing during the pandemic


In light of the current COVID-19 situation & pressure on clinical / frontline services NES has taken the difficult decision to postpone the #NESBereavement2021 conference that was due to take place virtually on Wednesday 24 February 2021 (am).

We remain committed to delivering the event as soon as it is practical and sensible to do so, as the programme will be of relevance to a wide range of health and social care professionals.

We are hopeful that a new date might be confirmed over the forthcoming weeks. Please keep an eye on this page and our Twitter account @NES_Bereavement for more information. 

Health and social care professionals can still express interest in attending, by contacting the NES Events team at events@nes.scot.nhs.uk if they would like to be notified by email when a new date is confirmed and registration opens.
