Dr Farrar was put forward by the family of a patient she treated exceptionally for many years up to his eventual death, with family members saying they felt 'very lucky to have such an exceptional lady as our dad’s doctor’.

The Primrose Medical Centre, Rosyth GP received her award at a ceremony in Edinburgh.

Exceptional GP care

RCGP Scotland chairman Dr Miles Mack said: 'I am well aware of the exceptional care GPs across Scotland give to their patients against the odds. It is always humbling, however, to hear of how the profession is perceived by our patients, of how my colleagues affect and benefit the lives of others.

'In Dr Farrar’s case, though an exceptional GP in her own right, she is the first to point to the team effort from her practice that makes such care possible. It is only right that we celebrate the contribution GPs make to lives across the country.'

The runner up was Dr David Murray of Lochcarron Medical Partnership in Ross-Shire.
