This year we have three different award “types”:

HCP Award categories

These awards are for healthcare professionals working in general practice and include the GP of the Year Award, Practice Manager of the Year Award, and Practice Nurse of the Year. They are open to HCPs who can nominate themselves, a colleague, or their team and entry is by the completion of a submission form.

Supplier Award categories

These awards are for suppliers and providers who support HCPs in their work. The long list has been created through market research and will then be voted upon by our database of HCPs. The shortlist for each award will be invited to attend. If a supplier would like to be added to the long list, they have until Friday 13th April 2018 to put themselves forward for consideration.

The People’s Choice Award: Surgery of the Year

This award is open to any surgery in the UK and can be entered by a surgery themselves or by a member of the public submitting their surgery. The public will then vote for their favourite surgery. Voting will close on 13th July 2018 and the shortlisted surgeries will then be invited to attend the awards evening.
