Deadline extended for GP Enterprise Awards 2013

We have extended the deadline for entries to this year's GP Enterprise Awards to 4 March 2013, giving GP practices an extra month to enter.

This is your chance to win a share of £10,000 in prizes for delivering innovative new services and high quality care.

The GP Enterprise Awards are presented annually by the RCGP and GP magazine, and proudly sponsored by the MDU. The aim is to celebrate innovation in general practice and promote ideas that can be easily adopted by most UK surgeries.

CCGs and groups of practices can also enter this year’s Improving Quality and Productivity award, for demonstrating efficiencies in areas such as prescribing or unplanned admissions.

The prizes are £1,000 for each category winner, plus a handsome wall plaque for your surgery waiting room. The overall winner, as voted by the readers of GP magazine, will receive a further £4,000 and the MDU Enterprise Award, presented at the RCGP’s annual awards ceremony in November 2013.

The easiest way to enter is via our online entry form below, where you can start an entry, save your work and continue later.

The NEW closing date for entries is 4 March 2013.
