General Practice Awards 2018

Press Release

On Friday 30th November the winners of this year’s General Practice Awards were announced at a glittering evening hosted by comedian Sally Phillips.

Over 500 healthcare and industry professionals attended the event where Alan Dedicoat, voice of the National Lottery and Strictly Come Dancing, guided us through the night.

With 24 awards to announce, including two new categories – the Women’s Health Initiative Award and the People’s Choice Award: Surgery of the Year – it was a busy and exciting event!

Our judges had an incredibly tough time to mark the hundreds of entries we received, and in some cases, it was very close between the top two finalists. For these awards we awarded Highly Commended certificates on the night as well as the main trophy.
