Today’s staff shoutout for Black History Month was sent in by Claudia Pinto De Oliveira, Acting Senior Infection Prevention and Control Nurse who nominated Zalika Geohaghon, Acting Lead Infection Prevention and Control Nurse. Claudia said:

Zalika Geohaghon

“Zalika is an inclusion advisor and also a staff representative for the Trust’s Race Equity Network. She is a shining example of a colleague who stands up for those who feel unable to, whilst upholding the highest standards of professional behaviour.”

Zalika is proud of her Caribbean heritage and wanted to share a Jamaican saying. ‘Di hiya di monkey climbs, the more it exposed.’

Zalika said: “This means higher positions require more responsibilities and also expose vulnerabilities, so continue to work on yourself.”
