A hospital nurse and mother-of-three from the West Midlands who “always went above and beyond” for her patients and colleagues has died aged 38.
Colleagues have remembered Frances Ebong, a staff nurse at Queen’s Hospital Burton in Staffordshire, as a “well-respected nurse” who had a “beautiful smile”.
“Colleagues will remember Frances as a well-respected nurse and that nothing was ever too much trouble”

Ms Ebong, who was married with three young children, died following an illness.
The University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust, which runs the hospital, announced Ms Ebong’s death this week.
The trust confirmed to Nursing Times that her illness was not related to Covid-19.
In a tribute to Ms Ebong, the trust said she would be “missed by all” those she worked with.
She had joined the trust in August 2018 and worked as a staff nurse on Ward 7 at the hospital.
“Colleagues on Ward 7 will remember Frances as a well-respected nurse and that nothing was ever too much trouble,” the trust said.
“They say Frances was such a caring nurse who always went above and beyond for her patients and colleagues, and that she had a beautiful smile and is missed by all on Ward 7.”
A minute’s silence was held for Ms Ebong at the staff memorial tree at the hospital on Tuesday.
“Our thoughts are with her family at this time and we will be doing everything we can to support them over the coming weeks and months,” the trust added.
