Having been awarded the “Psychiatrist of the Year” 2020 prize, Professor Bowden-Jones made a speech thanking her NHS Trust and the 150 people who have worked at her clinics over the years.
She finished with a dedication to colleagues:-
“I would like to dedicate this, the most significant award a psychiatrist can ever hope to receive, to all the doctors who have died of Covid this year whilst doing their job and to all the psychiatrists who, despite the very difficult circumstances, carried on looking after the mental health of the nation.
Ours is a vocation and it is at times like these that our true calling shines through.”
Psychiatrist of the Year, 2020
