The National Care Forum (NCF) pays tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
Professor Vic Rayner OBE, CEO of the NCF said:
“We mourn with the nation in our loss of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II who has been a model of dedicated service for over 70 years. As the patron of many of our member organisations she has demonstrated unreserved commitment to care, charity and community through her ongoing patronage and her previous patronage of members.
“Many of the people in care will be thinking about her and remembering the huge part she has been in all of their lives and how key chapters in their lives have been shaped, influenced and in harmony with key elements of her reign – from her wedding, coronation, jubilees, children, annual Queen speeches and many more. Care settings have always marked these moments with love and gratitude for her dedication and service and will be deeply saddened by the news of her death at this time.
“Our thoughts are with her family and King Charles III as he takes to his new responsibility as monarch and King.
