GLADYS MUJAJATI.JPGIt is with deep sadness that we confirm the loss of a much-loved community mental health nurse, who worked to support local people through the Derby City Community Mental Health Team for Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.

Gladys Mujajati was aged 46 and lived in Littleover, Derby. She had an underlying health condition and had stepped away from frontline duties in recent weeks.  We are aware that Gladys contracted COVID-19 before she sadly died in hospital earlier this week.

Ifti Majid, Chief Executive of Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, said:

“Gladys was a much loved member of the Derby City Community Mental Health Team and we are all devastated by her loss.

“Gladys had a big heart and colleagues have talked about how she always had a smile on her face.  She was known to be a warm and caring individual, always looking out for her patients and colleagues, showing true compassion and empathy.

“It is clear that in Gladys we have lost a fantastic nurse, colleague and friend.  

“Our thoughts and condolences are with Gladys’ family, friends and colleagues.”
