This Surrey GP was nominated by a number of GPs for his ‘optimism and pragmatism in spades’. He has been supporting practices across the UK, started printing 3D visors and set up hot hubs with such innovation that GPs in Wales and Australia got in touch with him for advice. ‘His decisive leadership, caring manner and protection of his team made everyone feel safe throughout. No-one deserves this accolade more,’ says Dr Elisabeth Galloway. ‘An absolute legend,’ says Dr Mike Smith.
