DAUK in the Express on death in service benefit and compensation for bereaved families of healthcare workers

Dr Rinesh Parmar, Chair of the Doctors’ Association UK said: “We welcome the Daily Express campaign to support the families of dedicated healthcare workers who have tragically lost their lives whilst trying to look after us all.

“It is morally unacceptable that we ask healthcare workers to put their lives on the line and simultaneously deny their families death in service benefit if the worst were to happen and they were to succumb to coronavirus in the line of duty.”
