It is with deep sadness that the Trust announces today the death of staff member Jo (Joselito) Habab from COVID-19. Jo passed away at Whiston Hospital’s ICU on Wednesday 20th May 2020; his wife Michelle was by his side.

Jo joined the Trust almost 18 years ago having trained as a nurse in his native Manila, Philippines. He achieved his NMC registration in 2003 and was a staff nurse in Trauma & Orthopaedics until 2011. He became a clinical nurse educator in 2011 during which time he was awarded Employee of the Month.

Jo was recently promoted to Orthopaedic Trauma Nurse Co-ordinator but before becoming ill, Jo was back in a key clinical education and training role keeping others safe by doing PPE training and FIT testing for face masks. He was an exemplary nurse and role model and fiercely proud of being both a nurse and a member of the WHH Family. He will be very sadly missed by all who knew and worked with him.

Jo leaves behind his wife Michelle, also a nurse in A&E at Whiston and their teenage son Dylan. They joined the minute’s silence to honour this remarkable nurse, husband, father, friend and colleague this morning at Warrington Hospital, led by Chief Executive, Professor Simon Constable. There was a simultaneous event at Halton Hospital led by the Trust’s Chairman Steve McGuirk CBE DL.
