Dr Peter Banyard (pictured left) would give his details to patients and their families and visit them at evenings and weekends.

He won the Excellence in Healthcare Award in the Warrington Primary Care Awards, organised by Warrington CCG.

Dr Banyard, who works at Springfields Medical Centre and has been a Warrington GP for 30 years, said: ‘People have always appreciated the continuity of care and it seemed to reassure people at a difficult time.’

The award summary said: ‘He is a dedicated doctor who has always practised to high standards throughout his career, whilst maintaining his professional knowledge and expertise.’

Other winners included Dr Joanne McCormack from Padgate Medical Centre (contributions to clinical commissioning) and Drs Jaish and Gareth Davies from the Folly Lane Medical Centre (most promising newcomers for their knowledge of IT and business, clinical knowledge and relationships with patients).

Warrington CCG chairman Dr Andy Davies (pictured right) said: ‘I was very proud of their commitment to the patients and people of Warrington. There were so many examples of people going above and beyond what was expected.’
