We are very sorry to confirm the sad death of our colleague, Elma Cavalida.
Elma worked as a maternity assistant at Northwick Park Hospital, where she was a valued member of the day assessment unit team.
Chris Bown, Chief Executive for London North West University Healthcare, and Lisa Knight, Chief Nurse, paid tribute to Elma:
“We are all deeply saddened by Elma’s death.
“She was known for her warmth, kindness and compassion, and for her true dedication to taking care of our future mums.
“Those who knew her well describe how she welcomed everyone who came into the unit with a smile. She would do everything in her power to help others – nothing was ever too much trouble.
“Elma was much loved by our mums-to-be and her colleagues alike, and she will be very greatly missed.
“Our thoughts are with her friends and family at this time.”
Note for press: We will not discuss further details of Elma’s death or other personal information, and we ask that you respect her family’s privacy.
