See Kate Prout's report here

Joshua Newman was born prematurely at Broomfield hospital six years ago. He was so poorly he had six heart attacks and was saved by Dr Babu and his team. To say thank you for saving his life, Joshua has nominated Dr Babu for a 'healthcare hero' award which is voted for by the public.

"I didn't really know I was going to have a poorly heart. I was very small and Mummy didn't know if I was going to live or not and now here I am."

– Joshua Newman, aged 6
