Read about the 2021 winners:
Dr Philip Newland-Jones
Dr Newland-Jones is the clinical director for the University Hospital Southampton inpatient diabetes and endocrine team. He is the first Consultant Pharmacist in this organisation to be a Clinical Director. He has been incredibly supportive to all staff members throughout the whole COVID period, enabling us to switch to a seven-day clinical inpatient service during the second wave. He was involved in Diabetes 101 and helped to write the diabetes COVID guidance that is now used on a daily basis within the organisation. Dr Newland-Jones is an inspirational leader and always goes that extra distance to ensure the team is well informed and supported. He is well respected for his work at a local and national level and always has time to check in on each member of the team. His colleagues say: “We are so lucky to have Phil within our team, he has really ensured that we have become a close-knit cohesive group who often meet socially outside of work, further enhancing the team.”
