Eight GPs have been awarded an MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) in the 2018 New Year’s Honours list, which recognises the achievement and service of ‘extraordinary people across the United Kingdom’.

This year’s list includes Dr Tracey Vell, chair of Greater Manchester LMCs, who has played a role in developing the multispecialty community provider (MCP) contract that could bring practices across England together in at-scale working arrangements. Dr Vell is also primary care lead for the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership - the organisation set up to run a fully devolved £6bn health and social care budget for the city.
