Looking back to May 2020, two months after the pandemic reached here as health care staff from the north west came together to hold a moment’s silence to remember those who had died with COVID-19.

The staff from different health care departments and organisations also showed their appreciation for the support given to NHS staff by local people.

The poignant event at Altnagelvin Hospital also featured a lone piper and a short service with local clergy.

In recognition of all health care workers in the north west who have worked tirelessly during the pandemic over the past 18 months.
