This award is dedicated to our dear friend Kate Westwood, an inspirational and dedicated paediatric registrar who touched the lives of so many of us and was hugely involved and invested in the PAFTAS.
One way we honour her memory is through naming this award after her and celebrating the qualities she so fantastically embodied.
