Key achievements

During the Covid-19 pandemic, Dr Hawkins developed the child health education group on Microsoft Teams.

This enabled all training within the children’s hospital to continue virtually when it had previously been delivered face-to-face.

The achievement was recognised in the Wessex Pafta’s 2020 when the Southampton paediatrics team won training unit of the year.
