Dr Mando Watson receives an RCPCH Honorary Fellowship

Published on: Saturday 20 April 2024

Dr Mando Watson, clinical lead for the CYP Programme in the NHS North West London ICS and the North Kensington (Grenfell) Recovery team, was recently appointed an Honorary fellow of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH).

This prestigious accolade was presented to Dr Watson (pictured above right) in recognition of her trailblazing work for integrated child health. 

The award is presented annually to only a small number of people considered by RCPCH members to have made a major contribution to paediatrics and child health through research, education, clinical service and leadership. Setting up Connecting Care for Children (CC4C), which is the national gold standard of how to integrate primary and secondary care, is just one of her many achievements.  

The award also recognises her work as a busy general paediatrician leading the paediatrics team (with a subspecialty interest in diabetes) at St Mary's Hospital in North West London and as a training programme director in the London School of Paediatrics. She has also been a RCPCH Regional Advisor for North Thames West and President of the Paediatrics and Child Health Council of the Royal Society of Medicine (RSM).

Dr Watson has also been involved both undergraduate and postgraduate medical education throughout her professional career, which led to her being the lead author for postgraduate guidance called Paediatrician of the Future: Delivering really good training.

The North Kensington Recovery team warmly congratulates Mando for all her achievements.
