Meet Sherron Watson, medical equipment library Supervisor and Inclusion Ambassador at the Royal United Hospitals Bath.
“My background is in retail and I have been a postmistress – which surprises many people. I joined the RUH as a cleaner in 2016 but now I have a split role working in the medical equipment library as a Supervisor for three days and I’m an Inclusion Ambassador for the other two days of the week.
“As an Inclusion Ambassador my role is to help staff by encouraging our diverse talent to go for all the opportunities at the Trust in terms of training, qualifications, recruitment, being involved in important staff forums, meetings and discussions. No matter your background, ethnicity or grade I’m here to help everyone realise their goals and potential. I really enjoy it and find it fulfilling.
“COVID has affected me with my mum. She’s in a home now and I can’t get to see her when I want to and I miss being able to hold and hug her. Being at work has been ok. I received a thank you letter in recognition for getting a big cleaning job done and I have kept that letter as it meant a lot to me.
“I value my family and friends so much more now and like to keep in touch no matter what. I also try to be more patient and go with the flow because you just can’t change some things. You’ve just got to make the most of it.”Donate during the COVID-19 crisis
