General Practice Awards 2019

Press Release

On Friday 29th November the winners of this year’s General Practice Awards were announced at a glittering evening hosted by comedian and actress Kerry Godliman. Almost 650 healthcare and industry professionals attended the event where 20 trophies were awarded to teams and individuals from across the UK.

This included several new categories for 2019 to recognise the changing NHS landscape:

  • The Extended Practice Team Member of the Year Award
  • The Receptionist/Reception Team of the Year Award
  • The Best Primary Care Network Newcomer 2019 (Sponsored by NHS England)
  • The Primary Care Network of the Year 2019 (Sponsored by NHS England)

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