NHS Somerset Chair, Paul von der Heyde and Chief Executive, Jonathan Higman, said

“It is with immense sadness we have learned of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Her steadfast and constant commitment to both her country and the commonwealth will always be remembered. A source of inspiration for many, her loss will be felt greatly throughout the UK and across the world. Her life and reign have been a constant source of inspiration and her love of her people, and her country will remain an enduring example of the importance of commitment and duty.”

“The NHS both locally in Somerset as well as across the country will remember her with affection and gratitude. During what must be an incredibly difficult time for the Royal Family, we would like to send them our heartfelt condolences.”
