RGP Flu Campaign 2020

Many patients have contacted us to ask if we are planning to hold Flu Clinics this year, after receiving letters from their local chemist.  We can confirm we are organising Flu Clinics, which are likely to be held in October as usual.

In order to maintain patient safety we've had to find a new venue with separate entrance and exit facilities this year.  Ramsey Commissioners have kindly offered the Ramsey Courthouse and we would like to thank them for helping us provide this service to our community.

Once we have a confirmed delivery date for the vaccines we'll update our website and Facebook page with the Clinic dates.

In Times of Bereavement

In the unfortunate event that a person has passed away, there are three things that must be done in the first few days;

  • Get a medical certificate from your GP or hospital doctor (this is necessary to register the death)
  • Register the death within 5 days (8 days in Scotland). You will then receive the necessary documents for the funeral.
  • Make the necessary funeral arrangements.

Arrange the funeral

The funeral can usually only take place after the death is registered. Most people use a funeral director, though you can arrange a funeral yourself.

Funeral directors

Choose a funeral director who’s a member of one of the following:

These organisations have codes of practice - they must give you a price list when asked.

Some local councils run their own funeral services, for example for non-religious burials. The British Humanist Association can also help with non-religious funerals.

Arranging the funeral yourself

Contact the Cemeteries and Crematorium Department of your local council to arrange a funeral yourself.

Funeral costs

Funeral costs can include:

  • funeral director fees
  • things the funeral director pays for on your behalf (called ‘disbursements’ or ‘third-party costs’), for example, crematorium or cemetery fees, or a newspaper announcement about the death
  • local authority burial or cremation fees

Funeral directors may list all these costs in their quotes.
