Oxfordshire United Hospitals announced the deaths yesterday of two of their hospital porters. The men worked on the John Radcliffe Hospital and were married to members of the nursing staff.
In a personal message to all staff Dr Bruno Holthof, Chief Executive Officer, and Sir Jonathan Montgomery, Chair of Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said: “This tragic loss of our two colleagues touches us all. We are a team and every single member of our team is precious. None of us can deliver our service to patients alone. We all need each other and we stand together in honouring the memories of our colleagues and together we share in the sadness of their families.”
At this time it is suspected that the men died as result of coronavirus.
