HSE Statement: Paul Reid, HSE CEO, pays tribute to Dr Waqar Ali Shah

HSE Media Release: 22 July 2020

Paul Reid, CEO of the HSE said today:

“It is with great sadness that I learned this morning of the passing of Dr Waqar Ali Shah in the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, following a long illness from Covid-19.

Dr Shah is the seventh healthcare worker to die as a result of Covid-19.

In common with his colleagues, I know he worked diligently and selflessly to care for patients at all times, and particularly during the pandemic. 

I wish to extend the sympathy of all in the HSE, and all healthcare staff, to Dr Shah’s wife, family and loved ones at this very sad time.

My thoughts are also with all of his colleagues in the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital.”

ENDS
