On Thursday 30th November at the Royal Lancaster London Hotel we were delighted to recognise the achievements of individuals and teams from across primary care at the General Practice Awards 2017.

The event showcased the work of those who are making a real difference, highlighting their talent, dedication and innovation, and the many ways they are striving to keep the nation healthy.

Our host was Dr Peter McDonald, Consultant General Surgeon at Northwick Park and St Mark’s (NPM), who got everyone laughing with his speech titled GIBLETS AND TRIPE – focusing on the lighter side of being a bowel surgeon! The evening was a great success full of excitement, celebration and lots of dancing.
