£3,000 award for quality care

A £3,000 grant is the first prize of this year's Guy Rotherham Award, which celebrates improvement in UK primary care and better outcomes for patients.

Applications are open to individual organisations such as primary care organisations, GPs, and any other community-based NHS team. Judges will look for demonstration of improved services for patients.

Entries must incorporate one of the nine changes outlined in 'High Impact Changes for Practice Teams'.

The document was published last year by the Improvement Foundation, a not-for-profit company incorporating the work of the National Primary Care Development Team, which works with 5,000 practices.

Improvement Foundation chief executive Ruth Kennedy said: 'This is an opportunity to acknowledge the improvements that organisations and individuals are making in primary care.'

The deadline for entry submission is 5 October.
