HM The Queen
Statement on behalf of Nick Carver, Chair and Anthony May, Chief Executive of Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust
We are deeply saddened by the death of Her Majesty The Queen.
Queen Elizabeth II was the longest serving monarch in British history, serving for more than 70 years. Throughout this time, Her Majesty earned the affection of generations here in the United Kingdom, across the Commonwealth and around the world. She was much loved and her contribution defies words.
We are incredibly proud of our own links to The Queen. It was 45 years ago that she opened the Queen's Medical Centre in 1977, something we recently celebrated in her Platinum Jubilee year. Staff across the organisation shared their memories of that day and it is memories like these that will help people in the coming days.
Our thoughts are with Her Majesty's family today and on behalf of everyone at NUH, we offer our sincere condolences to the Royal Family at this difficult time.
