COVID-19 has taught us not to wait for help with grief

Debbie Ripley Regional manager, Marie Curie London

In the London nursing service at Marie Curie we have lost one colleague in recent months, and others in the team have lost friends and family. Not all the deaths were due to COVID-19, but the impact of being unable to attend a funeral or have a proper celebration of the lives of friends or loved ones has been unbearably difficult.
