Right Arrow Doctor shortlisted for national award
30 March 2016 at 10:55


A doctor has been shortlisted for a top national award for her work with children who have diabetes.

May Ng is a consultant paediatrician endocrinologist based at Ormskirk hospital. She is also clinical director of Paediatrics and Child Health. 

As well as her work on diabetes, May has also made a massive contribution in the research, training and education of doctors and medical students.

She has been shortlisted in the prestigious Asian Women of Achievement Awards which celebrates the most extraordinary Asian women in the UK. 

May has worked in the NHS for more than 20 years and already has several awards under her belt. She holds multiple national roles which embody her passion to improve care for children with diabetes. She has also developed policy in relation to diabetes.

On a daily basis she works with children and families affected by diabetes across north Merseyside and West Lancashire.

The Asian Women of Achievement Awards started in 1999 to celebrate the often unsung Asian heroines of British life. Such women make a huge contribution in fields as diverse as business, entrepreneurship and social and humanitarian work.

Pinky Lilani, OBE DL, founder of Asian Women of Achievement Awards said: “We were thrilled this year to receive such a broad range of applications, covering not only a broad range of sectors but also coming from across the UK. We are proud to provide a platform to celebrate the talent and positive impact of British-Asian women in the community.”

The awards evening takes place in London on 12th May.
