Paul Nutt had just turned 60 and was working as an ambulance care assistant at Wexham Park Hospital in Berkshire when he contracted the virus.

He is survived by his wife, Kim, and two daughters, Charlotte and Louise.

Paul was the most loving and devoted husband and father, and he touched so many people’s lives with his joy and kindness.

As a family, we have been overwhelmed by the love and support shown by Paul’s colleagues and the local community that has brought us such comfort.

We would like to thank the team at Wexham Park Hospital for their incredible care and support, not just for Paul but for every patient they are working tirelessly to save from this dreadful virus.

Paul leaves a huge hole in our lives and we also know that his NHS family also shares our pain. We love you Paul and we will forever miss you.

– Family statement

Mr Nutt had celebrated his 60th birthday earlier this year with a trip to New York with his family.

It seems barely believable that such a short time after those joyous celebrations that he is no longer with us.”

He was dedicated to giving the very best care and service to the patients he looked after.

– Bob Sutcliffe, vehicle and equipment manager at South Central Ambulance Service

As well as front line work, he also worked as a liaison officer at the hospital.
