RCGP RSS News FeedRCGP Scotland launches 2019 awards to highlight excellence across general practice
With many of the awards being peer-nominated, and with a submission deadline of 29 July 2019, RCGP Scotland is encouraging GPs, trainees, trainers and patients to submit nominees as soon as possible.
New awards have been developed for medical students, early career academic GPs, established GPs, practice teams, GP trainees, GP educational supervisors and local improvement projects within GP clusters in Scotland. Several of the awards have been developed in partnership with NHS Education for Scotland (NES) and Scottish Government.
RCGP Scotland Chair, Dr Carey Lunan, said:
"I am delighted to support the launch of RCGP Scotland's 2019 awards. General practice is at the frontline of the NHS, playing a crucial role in providing care to patients in the heart of communities across Scotland, but the primary care landscape in Scotland is changing rapidly at the moment.
"These new awards highlight the great work being done across Scotland at the frontline of the NHS, and I am delighted that we have partnered with NHS Education for Scotland (NES) and Scottish Government to develop new awards that recognise specific work areas.
"I'd encourage the general practice community in Scotland to take a look at the different awards and nominate anyone that they think deserves recognition for their contribution to Scotland’s health and the NHS."
RCGP Scotland has announced seven awards for 2019. They are:
