NBCP in Scotland
Our vision and purpose
The National Bereavement Care Pathway (NBCP) Scotland Project is funded by Scottish Government and delivered in partnership with Sands – the stillbirth and neonatal death charity. The project builds on the work of the NBCP in England.
The vision of the National Bereavement Care Pathway (NBCP) is to increase the quality of bereavement care and reduce local and national inconsistencies so all bereaved women, partners and families in Scotland receive compassionate, person centred care.
At the heart of this vision is the voice of women and men affected by pregnancy and baby loss. Their voice is guiding us as we develop the pathway for Scotland and will be heard at every stage of the process.
The National Bereavement Care Pathway Scotland provides dedicated, evidence-based care pathways designed for all healthcare professionals and staff who are involved in the care of women, partners and families at all stages of pregnancy and baby loss.
The pathways have been developed together with our Core Partners from other pregnancy and baby loss charities and Royal Colleges, a wide range of healthcare experts, and our Advisory Group of women and men who’ve experienced loss,
