Colleagues have paid tribute to a nurse who died after he was once hit by means of a van whilst biking in Edinburgh.
James Harrison, 36, was once hit by means of the Mercedes Sprinter van on Mount Vernon Street, on the Gilmerton Street junction, at about 08:45 on Thursday.
NHS Lothian stated he was once a “a lot beloved and neatly revered colleague”.
The daddy-of-two were a lead analysis nurse in cardiology and had volunteered within the in depth care unit to strengthen the Covid-19 reaction.
Professor Alex McMahon, NHS Lothian govt director of nursing, midwifery and allied healthcare pros, stated Mr Harrison was once a “a lot beloved and revered” staff member.
“In fresh months, James volunteered in our in depth care unit to strengthen the Covid-19 reaction, demonstrating his enduring dedication, compassion and backbone to strengthen each sufferers and group of workers,” he added.
“James will probably be in reality ignored by means of the entire colleagues he labored along, and by means of the broader analysis group right here in Lothian and throughout Scotland.
“From everybody at NHS Lothian, we provide our heartfelt condolences to the Harrison circle of relatives. Our ideas are with James’s spouse and two babies at this in reality tricky time.”
