Mid Essex Hospital Service Dying Matters feature
The mortuary team have been running tours as part of Dying Matters Awareness Week.
We caught up with manager Adam Raven and deputy Tarot Noble to discuss death and why they’ve opened their doors to staff.
The mortuary may be quiet but it’s always busy. In 2018, the team of Adam, Tarot, Amelie Warnier, Patrice Brissett and Vicky Wilson, dealt with 2251 patients – that’s an average of 43 a week, a quarter of which had a post-mortem.
