Following the tragic events in Gloucester yesterday Shaun Clee, Chief Executive of ²gether NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We are all deeply shocked by the tragic incident that occurred on one of our inpatient wards yesterday morning.
“The extremely sad event, which resulted in the death of a highly compassionate and dedicated colleague, has had a profound impact on everyone working in our trust.
“Sharon Wall was a well-respected healthcare assistant and everyone who knew her speaks about her warmth, caring nature and good sense of humour. She will be deeply missed by colleagues and the service users she supported.
“We are still in the early stages of the investigation and continue to assist Gloucestershire Police in their work. Above all, our thoughts remain with Sharon’s friends and family and, along with Gloucestershire Police we ask that the family are given privacy and time to grieve during this difficult period.
“On behalf of colleagues across our trust, I extend our most sincere and deepest sympathies.”
