The Quality Awards are back for 2018, celebrating excellence in primary care across south east Essex. Now in its third year, the initiative acknowledges the contribution of the whole practice team, because quality is the responsibility of every individual.
We aim to encourage innovation, showcase ideas, share good practice and highlight successes. There are five awards nominated by CCG member practices and one nominated by the public - the People's Choice award.
Is there someone working at your local GP practice who has made a real difference to you or a loved one? It can be any member of practice staff, clinical or non-clinical, that you think stands out.
The other categories, nominated by CCG and member practice staff, are: Innovation and Technology, Leadership, Public engagement, Unsung hero and Partnership Working. A review panel, including external stakeholders, will evaluate all the nominations and agree the winners for each category.
Last year: The People's Choice winners collect their award from Chris Hatton, editor of the Echo.
