In memory of our nursing staff

Thank you for taking time to remember a nurse or health care employee who has died during the coronavirus pandemic.
Every life lost is a tragedy, and on behalf of everyone at the Royal College of Nursing, I would like to pay tribute to our colleagues who have died whilst caring for others and keeping them safe.
I hope this online Book of Remembrance will become a lasting legacy that reflects the bravery and compassion of our nursing colleagues. I sincerely hope it will offer some comfort to the family and friends of those who have died, and a reassurance that they will never be forgotten.

Donna Kinnair,
Chief Executive and General Secretary, RCN

I'm sorry for any nursing staff who have lost their lives to covid. You have been severely let down by the government in many ways. Thank you for everything you do

To our lovely darling angel Miri who sadly lost her life to Covid 19 last year. She helped to care for the first wave covid 19 on Critical Care. She was a loving family lady who lost her life to Covid

no matter where the nurses are from, they still require our gratitude for all they've give. Especially those who've given their lives

RIP to the pandemic heroes.
Caring people are hard to find. You did a wondaful job looking after people, you went through a lot, saw a lot. The job was not always pleasant, but you did it, you made a difference. RIP
