Sad News From Mid Cheshire Hospitals Foundation Trust

Brian Darlington
15 April 2020

It is with great sadness that we announce that Brian Darlington, a long-serving porter with Mid Cheshire Hospitals, has sadly passed away at Leighton Hospital and had tested positive for Coronavirus (Covid-19).

All our thoughts are with Brian’s family and friends at this time and we offer them our sincere condolences.

Brian’s wife Ava said,

"We were married for 46 years and Brian was a great husband, as well as father and grandfather. He was dedicated to the Trust and as a family we are grateful for and appreciative of all of the kind words and messages we have seen and received."

Brian is fondly remembered by his colleagues in Hotel Services for his sense of humour and positive outlook.

Richard Studinski, Facilities Supervisor said: “Nothing was ever too much trouble for Brian; he worked hard and was happy to do whatever was needed of him.

“He always walked round the hospital with a smile on his face; passing out sweets to colleagues he’d meet on the corridor.”

Chief Executive James Sumner said: “Brian had dedicated over 20 years to the Trust during his NHS career and will be sadly missed by all who knew and worked with him. He was without doubt a treasured member of the team at Mid Cheshire.”
