Patient Mrs Samar Sheik said of Dr May Walker-Love, from Cumbernauld Medical Practice, near Glasgow: ‘Dr Walker-Love has been a pillar of strength for us, because of her caring and empathetic manner. She went out of her way to help us organise everything from health visitors, nurses, hospice care and also contacted another family whose child had the same rare condition as my own.

‘I can honestly say that without her help coping would have been far more of a challenge. She did and continues to do whatever is humanly possible to ease our burden.'

Dr Walker-Love won a crystal rose bowl and a plaque.
