Our Quality Awards aim to celebrate all the great work going on in primary care across south east Essex.
It is estimated that over 4,000 appointments take place every day in GP practices across south east Essex. Most of us never get to hear about the positive stories, the staff that go the extra mile for their patients. It is true to say many of them save lives every day of the week.
From GPs, nurses, pharmacists and health care assistants on the front lines of health care, to reception staff and vital clerical roles supporting people day-to-day, these awards are open to everyone working in GP Practices that helps make a difference to the health of people in south east Essex.
We ask for nominations from GP practices for six categories, with an additional category for the public to nominate their People's Choice. This can be any member of GP practice staff, clinical or non-clinical, that make a difference to patients' lives.
