The Avicenna Medical Practice in Barkerend has been shortlisted for the GP Team of the Year Award at the General Practice Awards 2023.

The GP Awards recognise, highlight, and reward the hard work and innovation that gets carried out in primary care across the UK, with the GP Team of the Year category allowing practices to showcase multidisciplinary teams that have had a positive impact on improving the patient experience and care given.

Avicenna Medical Practice is one of just nine practices nationwide that has been shortlisted for the flagship GP Team of the Year award.

The practice has been recognised for the successful redesign of its appointment booking system, triage and care navigation processes to help patients be seen by the right person at the right time, receiving the best clinical advice for their condition.

Sarah Rhodes, practice manager at Avicenna Medical Practice, said: “We are delighted that our efforts to improve patient access have been recognised nationally. Since we implemented our new appointment booking system patient satisfaction over the last year has increased significantly thanks to our dedicated and multi-skilled clinical team consisting of GPs, nurses, paramedics and advanced nurse practitioners. We constantly strive to improve everything we do whether this is clinical targets, administrative achievements or general patient experience and social assistance.”

The General Practice Awards welcomes hundreds of guests from across primary healthcare and the healthcare industry in the UK, for a fantastic night celebrating the very best in patient care – highlighting innovation, dedication, and passion.

Winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony in London on Friday 8 December.
