RUH Children's Doctor recognised in National Excellence Awards

Congratulations to paediatrician Dr Timothy Warlow, who has won a national Paediatric Award for Training Achievements at the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) Annual Conference.

Dr Warlow won in the category of Best Senior Trainee in the awards, which recognise excellence in paediatric training. The awards are hotly contested and Dr Warlow received the accolade over other nominations from across the country.

Dr Warlow said: “I feel so honoured to receive this award from the RCPCH. It is testament to the example set by all of my colleagues at the Royal United Hospital in Bath, and the team working in Paediatrics at Severn Deanery, all of whom prioritise and actively look after the welfare of trainees. I would like to especially thank Drs Ramachandra, Jones, Maddicks and Marden for their support over the last few years of my training."

Dr Caroline Platt, Who nominated Dr Warlow, said: “Tim is an exceptional and caring trainee who is an asset to the whole department and richly deserves the recognition. He has a keen interest in palliative care and a passion to improve the experience of families in this challenging area, last year introducing a comprehensive guideline on palliative care in neonates.”

Dr Warlow is now at University Hospital Wales in Cardiff continuing his paediatric training in the area of children’s palliative care.

This year’s Paediatric Awards for Training Achievements were presented by Professor Anne Greenough, Vice President for Research at the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health
