Start a trust fund for families of NHS staff who have died

With all the millions of pounds that have been raised through donations from people, charities etc I would like to see a trust fund for the families left behind by staff who have died on the front line.

Why the contribution is important

I think most people would prefer that their donations would go in some way to the actual NHS staff rather than being taken into the general funding of the NHS and used to pay for things our governments should be paying for anyway.

    These people will need all the help they can get. Not just money but it will help.

    Totally agree. All the millions Captain Tom raised should have gone to death in service payments.

    I do think some sort of compensation should be given to the families of those who have died because of actually physically being on the front line but how do you work out folk that work for the NHS who caught it at work and not just under social circumstances & on say sick leave or holidays & couldn't possibly have caught it at work. There is also the question of some NHS workers on top salaries who are pretty well off financially & their families don't actually need the money & would be well insured & others who were on the very basic income who's families will now have a terrible struggle financially to even find funeral costs. Then there is also the issue of all those who have been working say in ICU who have been total heroes going above & beyond risking their lives on a daily basis but get nothing because they didn't die.
