London Ambulance Service paramedic Andrew Cox (40) will be spending Father’s Day alone while he shields from his wife and two young children to help protect them from the dangers of coronavirus.
Andrew’s wife, Shelley (35), has been battling Crohn’s disease since she was 16 years old. Her illness puts her into a higher risk category and Andrew’s job as a paramedic working on the frontline makes living as family together too risky at the moment.
This year Andrew, Shelley and their two children, Phoebe (6) and George (2), will be postponing Father’s Day until they can be reunited again.
Since lockdown began on 23 March, 162 London Ambulance Service staff have moved out of their family homes and into temporary accommodation so they could stay on the frontline helping Londoners while protecting loved ones who may be at additional risk.
