Tim Galley, from Wrexham, North Wales, refused to call an ambulance as his wellbeing turned out to be more terrible. He told his girlfriend that doctors would be busy dealing with other people.

As reported by Daily Mail, the 47-year-old banker was found dead at his home while in self-isolation with coronavirus symptoms. After he got sick, he needed to stay separated from his girlfriend, Donna Cuthbert.

His sickness started with a little tickle in his throat, which he developed after attending a stag party on March 14. In an interview with North Wales Live, Cuthbert, 46, said that Galley chose not to go into work when he began to develop a fever.

"Of course I was very worried about when he developed the fever, as I was worried about the coronavirus," she said. "But as he wanted to protect me I couldn't go and visit him."

In spite of the fact that she had not been able to see him since he chose to stay all alone, Cuthbert said messages from him became less frequent.

She advised that her boyfriend call the NHS 111 line for guidance as his temperature rose. Galley, however, declined, as reported by The Guardian.

Cuthbert said that Galley told her he had no underlying medical issues. He also said that the NHS would be too busy dealing with other patients.

According to Cuthbert, Galley had such a huge heart and that they had such a beautiful life together.

"My amazing Tim didn't want to waste the NHS time so chose not to phone," she explained, "and get help and rather stayed at home in isolation thinking he would get better."

As reported by Metro, Cuthbert, who runs a wedding business, has urged everyone to take the coronavirus lockdown earnestly to avoid other friends and family being taken.

She said that everybody should remain inside and adhere to the regulations. She added her boyfriend took all the precautions, but still, the virus got him and that her heart is broken into tiny pieces.

According to Cuthbert, Galley had such a huge heart and that they had such a beautiful life together. They were supposed to be attending the wedding of her daughter Danielle. However, that has also been dropped due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Cuthbert shared they went on so many holidays and had so many things arranged. Galley, who gave her so much love joy and incredible times, was her future, she added.
