Darent Valley Hospital NHS worker from Bexley dies of Covid

A hugely popular Darent Valley Hospital worker from Bexleyheath has sadly died after catching Covid-19.

Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust yesterday paid tribute to Jan Agyurek, a chemotherapy support worker on the Pine Therapy Unit at the Dartford hospital.

The mum of three and grandmother of four died earlier this week after a two week battle with coronavirus.

Jan, aged 63, grew up in Crayford and worked across a number of NHS posts before joining Darent Valley Hospital in 2010 where she was reportedly hugely popular.
