Dr Ryan Watkins (Until March 2021)
I was appointed as Consultant Neonatologist in 2004, following completion of my training in paediatrics and neonatal medicine in Nottingham, Melbourne and Newcastle upon Tyne. Alongside my clinical role, I have also been the Clinical Director of Children’s Services at my Trust since 2007. Since 2017, I have been the Divisional Chief of Children and Women’s Services.
In 2016, our Children’s Services were rated as ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission. In 2017, Maternity Services were rated as ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission. The 2018 MBRACE report indicates that our neonatal service has the best outcomes of any neonatal unit with a neonatal surgery service and is in the top 3 performing neonatal units overall.
