Elbert Rico had worked for John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford since coming to the UK from the Philippines in 2004. He was said to be hard-working and known to always prioritise the needs of others. He loved his job and always had a smile on his face.
The fact that he rarely ever called in sick to work is testament to his dedication and passion.
His wife is a member of Oxford University NHS Foundation Trust’s nursing staff.
We send our condolences to his family.
We will remember Elbert Rico.
