The online vote has been organised by newspaper the Manchester Evening News and Dr Chand's GP competition is from Dr Hamish Stedman, chairman of Salford CCG, and Dr Bill Tamkin, chairman of South Manchester CCG.

Nine other health professionals fill out the suggested top 12, with the vote closing on Tuesday (June 10), and the dozen also form part of a list of 250 of the most influential people in Greater Manchester.

Dr Chand recently caused headlines when he opposed the introduction of charges for GP appointments rejected at the LMCs conference in York last month.
