Finalists announced for the GP Enterprise Awards 2014

We are proud to announce the shortlist of finalists for the six categories in this year's GP Enterprise Awards.

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 adopted UK-wide.

The shortlisted entrants will now be reviewed by an expert team of GPs and patients to decide who will win the £1,000 prize in each category.

The six category winners will be presented with their awards by a senior RCGP representative at our MIMS Clinical Update conference on 19 June in London. We then ask the readers of GP magazine and to vote for their favourite of the category winners in a poll over the summer months.

The overall winner will receive the MDU Enterprise Award and a prize of £4,000, which will be presented at the RCGP annual awards day in November.

Many thanks to all of the practices who entered this year and congratulations to the finalists - we wish you the best of luck in the competition.
