A leading children’s doctor has been shortlisted for Clinical Leader of the Year in the prestigious 2015 HSJ Awards.
Dr May Ng, who is Clinical Director of Paediatrics at Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust, is the Consultant Paediatrician and Paediatric Endocrinologist at the Trust.
She is a clinical lead of multiple national award-winning initiatives, including highly commended runner-up for Diabetes Team of the Year in the national BMJ Awards 2015.
Last December her team’s children’s diabetes service was named one of the best in the country after achieving nearly maximum marks in a national peer review of trusts and services diagnosing and providing diabetes treatment to children and young people.
Dr Ng said: “It’s an honour to be a finalist for the HSJ clinical leadership award which reflects the dedication and skill of the fantastic colleagues I work with. It’s their unstinting dedication to the care of our patients that makes this nomination possible.”
As Chair of the North West Paediatric Diabetes Network, the largest in the country, Dr Ng led the network to win the Judges’ Award in the 2014 National Diabetes Quality In Care Awards for the development of a National Care Plan for the Management of Diabetes in Schools.
She is described as a passionate and a well-respected leader, who is highly driven with a focus on improving patients’ quality of care.
Dr Ng has led the national development of the Sick Days management guideline for patients and healthcare professionals adopted across the country. She also serves as Secretary of the Association of Children’s Diabetes Clinicians, Diabetes Officer for British Society of Paediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes, and a member of the External Reference Group for National Institute of Clinical Excellence and the National Steering Group for Children and Young People’s Diabetes Peer Review. She is also actively involved in development of national paediatric training and policies in diabetes.
The HSJ Awards will be held on 18 November at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.
