Portrait of Wilma Banaag

Wilma Banaag

Wilma Banaag, also known as Ate Wilma, was a nurse at Watford General Hospitals. She passed away on Friday 17 April 2020 while being treated for symptoms of COVID-19.

Ate Wilma Banaag dedicated over 19 years at the hospital, having started there when she moved to the UK from the Philippines in 2001.
