The shortlist for GP Awards 2022

We had an exceptional level of entries for the GP Awards, which is run by Pulse’s publisher Cogora. GPs, staff and teams have shown incredible innovation and resilience during what has been an incredibly tough time. Every entry we received showed individuals and teams working well beyond what can be reasonably expected, and our judges commented on how hard it was to shortlist the entries. But we can reveal those entries that have excelled. The winners will be announced at the GP Awards in London on 9 December
