CPA extends sympathy following the death of The Queen
09 September 2022
The Care Provider Alliance and its members offer their sympathy and support to the Royal Family on the sad death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Nadra Ahmed, chair of CPA, said:
“Losing a family member is a painful and difficult experience for everyone – but we have also lost a beloved head of state who gave a lifetime of public service to our nation.
“The Queen’s passing at such a remarkable age will affect many of us and bring back memories of our own losses. On behalf of all the members of the Care Provider Alliance, we wish to extend our deepest sympathy to members of the Royal Family and to all those who cared and supported The Queen in her final stage of life. We are deeply grateful for her life of flawless service and her commitment to the welfare of her citizens: it is particularly poignant that one of her last official visits was to the opening of a hospice less than two months ago.
“This is the end of an era. May she rest in peace and may happy memories comfort all those who grieve for her.”
