Glen had recently returned to work as a bank health care assistant at both PRMCH’s acute mental health services and at Kingswood rehab services.

He worked at Pine Ward for many years joining shortly after it opened in 1995.

Glen’s colleagues said he was instrumental in “helping turn things around” at the centre.

The tribute said: “He was the ‘go to’ person who knew everything about the ward and how to get things done. Service users often commented on his wonderful smile and positive attitude.”

So far, 14 NHS employees have died with Covid-19.
