RCN Chief Executive & General Secretary Dame Donna Kinnair has written to the prime minister demanding immediate clarity on death in service benefits and financial support for families of nursing staff who have died due to COVID-19.

We want benefits to be retrospective, from the start of the pandemic, and to apply to all health and care staff, regardless of their length of service or the setting in which they worked.
