A Bolton hospice nurse and a healthcare assistant are among those named on a list of 199 frontline health and care workers who have sadly died after contracting coronavirus.

Through tributes from local NHS trusts and loved ones, the PA news agency has confirmed the names of health and social care workers who have died after contracting Covid-19 since March 11.

Among them is Gill Oakes, who was a senior clinical support nurse at Bolton Hospice. She died on April 30 after contracting coronavirus.

Leigh Vallance, the chief executive at Bolton Hospice, said: “She was a brilliant nurse who often helped new members of the team settle into their role at the hospice. We will always remember her kindness and her lovely smile.”

A health care worker who died at Royal Bolton Hospital is also named on the list.

Lourdes Campbell, healthcare assistant, known as “Des” to her colleagues, was remembered as “diligent and compassionate” by the Bolton NHS Foundation Trust.

In a statement on April 16, chief executive of the trust Fiona Noden said Ms Campbell died in the critical care unit at Royal Bolton Hospital after contracting the virus.
