The Queen’s Nursing Institute has paid tribute to Philip Goodeve-Docker, who hoped to raise money for the charity with his tragic Greenland expedition.
Our thoughts today are with Philip's family. Philip died doing something that he had always dreamed of, undertaking a great challenge while helping others at the same time.
Staff and trustees at the QNI are very shocked and saddened by this tragic loss but also immensely proud of him and his bravery.
"t is the charity's intention not to let this tragic loss of life pass without creating a suitable and enduring memorial to Philip.
Mr Goodeve-Docker also undertook the challenge in memory of his late grandfather, who was a treasurer for the QNI, which is dedicated to improving the nursing care of people in their own homes.
