At the awards ceremony

Dr Peter Reynolds, Consultant on Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at St Peter’s Hospital, was awarded Best Neonatal specialist for treating 13oz Frankie Thompson.

He was smaller than a can of beans when mum Michelle from Farnborough gave birth at 24 weeks. Frankie was then treated by Dr Reynolds and a very experienced team on NICU.

The Prime Minister said: “Peter and all the other winners represent the very best of our NHS — they have shown care, compassion and professionalism, and I want to say thank you to them.”

Dr Reynolds said of Frankie, 13 months: “Seeing him now, so big and full of life, is so rewarding.”
