Craig Goldsney.jpgCNWL wishes to pay tribute to mental health nurse Craig Goldsney who died on 21 January due to Covid-19.

Mr Goldsney, 47, was a registered mental health nurse within the healthcare department at HMP Woodhill, where he worked since December 2007.

He is survived by his wife, Becca, and three sons, Jacob, Ben and Ethan.

His colleagues have created a GoFundMe page to help his family during this difficult time. In tribute to their colleague, the Woodhill Collective wrote: “It is with great sadness that we are setting up this page in honour and memory of  our dear friend and much respected colleague, Staff Nurse Craig Goldsney…

“Craig was an extremely popular member of the healthcare team with his colleagues and prison staff and he was well respected and liked by his patients.

“He will be greatly missed by everyone that knew him.

“We have started this page to raise funds to help his family at this difficult time.”

CNWL Chief Executive Claire Murdoch said: “This is terribly sad news for Craig’s family, friends and colleagues in Offender Care. He was a dedicated professional, and embodied the service motto of “caring, not judging.” This is so sad, but Craig will be remembered with honour and gratitude.”
