NURSES lined a hospital corridor to pay tribute to a well respected midwife who recently died from coronavirus.
Lynsay Coventry, 54, worked at the maternity unit at The Princess Alexandra Hospital.
She was self-isolating and passed away on Thursday having tested positive for the killer bug.
Her grieving colleagues lined the corridors with their heads bowed to pay tribute to Lynsay, saying they were ‘united in grief.’
Midwife Rachael Marchant posted a photo on Facebook, captioned: “We stand apart to minimise spread but stand together in mourning the loss of our midwife!”
In a statement, Lynsay’s family said their “hearts are broken at the loss of our loving, wonderful and caring mum, sister, daughter and grandmother”, adding she was very proud to be an NHS midwife.
