We are greatly saddened by the death of Andreea Cristea at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, where we have cared for her following the Westminster terror attack.
Ms Cristea was transferred in March from The Royal London Hospital for specialist care at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, both run by Barts Health NHS Trust.
The thoughts of all our staff are with her family and friends at this difficult time.
Her family shared their gratitude today, saying: “After fighting for her life for over two weeks, our beloved and irreplaceable Andreea - wonderful daughter, sister, partner, dedicated friend and the most unique and life loving person you can imagine - was cruelly and brutally ripped away from our lives in the most heartless and spiritless way.
“She will always be remembered as our shining ray of light that will forever keep on shining in our hearts.
“Our family, together with Andrei, are deeply touched and eternally grateful for the unimaginable efforts and never-ending dedication provided to her and us by the entire medical personnel of each and every hospital involved. Their kindness and empathy are beyond compare.”
