Healthwatch Derby nominated Peartree Medical Centre for the Heathwatch Network NHS 70 Award 2018. The Network Awards is a new initiative started by Healthwatch England in the run up to the 70th anniversary of the NHS. It is to recognise the outstanding contributions of health and care staff towards improving patient care.
The reason for this nomination was that during the winter the surgery rang and spoke to all vulnerable patients ensuring they were safe and well. The medical centre has also been working with the local hospital to provide better tailored support to diabetic patients, for example, giving talks during the Ramadan period to keep diabetic patients safe.
Peartree Medical Centre received a runner up award and this was presented to them by our Chair on 13 November 2018.
