  Rob Delaney opens up about losing his son and the great care the NHS gave in touching column Rob Delaney has praised the NHS for the amazing treatment his son, Henry received before his tragic death from cancer. Henry passed away at home in January 2018, aged two, after being diagnosed with a brain tumour two years prior. In a column for The Guardian, offering his support for Labour in the general election, the 42-year-old actor says he believes he was only able to be at home because the NHS had turned him and his wife into “expert carers” and Great Ormond Street’s palliative care team had set the family up so well. He also praised NHS staff for the care they gave the family following his son’s diagnosis.

GWR said that the outfit that was too close to the requirements for a doctor’s uniform but has since apologised for its decision and acknowledged that its guidelines were “out of date”.

The original decision sparked a passionate response on social media, with lots of nurses sharing images of themselves in their uniform using the hashtag #WhatNursesWear.

Ms Anderson, who was handed the award by radio presenter Simon Mayo, said she was “overwhelmed” by the amount of support she had received.

“It was great that the story also shone some light on the nursing profession as a whole and may have helped to change some of the stereotypical images that are out there,” she said.
