“Claire struggled to get GP appointments and got almost no support, it was horrible. She was referred to a clinic, but she did not have x-rays or CT scans. She had all these different allergies and kept getting shingles.”
Despite her battle with Covid, Claire continued to work as a public duty officer.
The night she died, Claire went to bed at her Acocks Green residence feeling exhausted, according to her mother, Julia.
