35. Professor Nigel Sparrow


Hailed as an ‘unsung hero' by our panel, Professor Nigel Sparrow is chair of the professional development board at the RCGP.

In this role, he has helped to lead and co-ordinate the development, implementation and support of a strategy for CPD for GPs – crucial for the launch of revalidation at the end of the year.

A GP in Nottingham, Professor Sparrow has also played a large role in moving the college's quality scheme for practice accreditation to align with Care Quality Commission registration, a move intended to ease the regulatory burden for GPs.
