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

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
