Dr Hewa Dharmarathna

This GP in Southend, Essex, was nominated by patient Shurleea Harding, who credits him for saving her life. ‘Aware of my background and my struggles with everyday life, he would phone me to check on my wellbeing without being asked to do so,’ she says. ‘I have many health problems, but he always gave me choices which made me feel I mattered when it mattered most.’
