Sergeant Brett France left Royal Bolton Hospital yesterday after spending three months battling COVID-19.
He was welcomed by family, friends and colleagues who wanted to join in and celebrate his recovery.
Sgt France has nearly 20 years experience with Greater Manchester Police, currently working in Command and Control in our Operational Communications Branch.
“It was such a relief to see Brett leave hospital today,” said Chief Superintendent Paul Clements.
“He was so very nearly taken from us. His recovery is testament to his courage, the love and support of his wife Jacqueline and his two boys Henry and Alex, and the outstanding care given to him by the staff at the Royal Bolton Hospital.
“Brett is a much-loved officer, dedicated to his colleagues and the communities of Greater Manchester. Our prayers have been answered today”
Well wishes have been flooding in from the people of Greater Manchester:
