Quadruplet sisters, 21, have all begun working for the NHS – three of them at the Royal Papworth Hospital, Cambridge. 

The fourth sister has joined Kettering General Hospital. 

But they won’t be the only family members working for the NHS – their mother is a nurse in the oncology department of Ipswich Hospital.  

Royal Papworth has shared photos of the sisters who were born in Oman in the Middle East in 2007 before the family came to the UK.
