An Andover-based charity is looking for the heroes who help carers in their daily lives.
The Princess Royal Trust for Carers in Hampshire, based at Andover War Memorial Hospital, alongside NHS Hampshire, Southampton and the Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group, has announced the launch of the GP Carer Awards.
These awards are intended to celebrate and recognize practice staff for the excellent work they do with unpaid family caregivers, and for an individual or team seen by patients as having provided high quality, compassionate and individual to patients.
The charity is looking for the incredible work that the NHS does every day.
He believes that GPs are the beating heart of patient care and primary care, and his awards are intended to recognize excellence, effort and contributions that have been made to general practice.

We know it has been difficult to strive for greatness, but equally difficult to perform surgeries with Covid-19 presenting so many challenges to the healthcare community.
“For carers, this pandemic has seen them become more isolated than ever and, while looking out for their own health and that of the person they are caring for, their GP has been vital to that.”
Nominations for the 2021/2022 awards are open now and will close on April 18, 2022.
The award ceremony will take place at the end of April.
