Coronavirus: Surrey hospital emergency care practitioner passes away with virus on 52nd birthday

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 7:08pm 13th May 2020.

The family of an emergency care practitioner at East Surrey Hospital who has died after contracting COVID-19 have paid tribute to him.

Peter Hart passed away yesterday (12 May) on what was his 52nd birthday.

The husband and father had worked for South East Coast Ambulance Service since 2006 before joining the hospital three years ago.

In a statement Peter’s family said:

“Pete has touched so many people’s lives, spreading his joy and kindness wherever he went.

“An amazing Husband and Dad.

“Nothing will ever bring him back to us, though the overwhelming love and support from family, friends and the local community has given us such comfort.

“We are in awe of the tireless efforts of all NHS workers currently battling this evil virus.

“We would sincerely like to thank the incredible ICU team at East Surrey Hospital for their world-class, compassionate care.

“Our thoughts are also with his Emergency Department colleagues, whom he considered his second family.

“A huge hole has been left in our hearts.

“We love you, forever and always.”

Peter also volunteered at the hospital providing his pet therapy dog to those receiving care.

Michael Wilson CBE, chief executive of Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust, described him as "a friend and a colleague" whose priority was always the care of patients.

He added that his thoughts were with Peter’s family and support was being offered to them.
