A CHILDREN’S specialist based at Ormskirk Hospital has been shortlisted for a top national award for her work with youngsters with diabetes.
May Ng is a consultant paediatrician endocrinologist at the hospital in Wigan Road and is also clinical director of paediatrics and child health.
As well as her work on diabetes, she has also made a massive contribution in the research, training and education of doctors and medical students.
Ms Ng has been shortlisted in the prestigious Asian Women of Achievement Awards which celebrates the most extraordinary Asian women in the UK.
Having worked in the NHS for more than 20 years, she already has several awards to her name and holds multiple national roles which embody her passion to improve care for children with diabetes.
She has also developed policy in relation to the condition and works with children and families affected by diabetes across north Merseyside and West Lancashire on a daily basis.
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 the awards said: “We were thrilled this year to receive such a broad range of applications 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 Thursday, May 12.
