The message..

It took me ages to find a related photo ( that wasn't tasteless as I feel )

Delivering a Death message is a call, that returns you back to earth with a thump in this job, like a quite a lot of the work in fact.

I recall having a whole day about this in Hendon, and also found when ever I have had call to be the one knocking on the door, each and every time I have called on the job related number on "Delivering a death message"

Its a shame we are not measured on this "preformance" indicator

It has got to be a hard thing to tell someone. The only thing you can do is be as tactful as you can and give them what information you can.

That's one thing, when I did run with the ambulance...we weren't the ones to tell the family. The doctor would pronounce them and then it fell to them to inform the families. I always felt for them having to do it too.

This would be a tough part of the job. I know I couldn't do it.
