GPs and other primary care staff from across the country have been sharing their successes on Twitter using the #myGPteam hashtag.
From Northern Ireland to East Surrey general practice teams are showing that hard work and innovation is continuing in the face of the pandemic and as practice teams work to roll out the biggest vaccination campaign in NHS history.
Staffordshire GP Dr Chandra Kanneganti, who is also chair of the county's LMC and a member of the BMA's GP committee, shared the fantastic progress his team has made with vaccinating care home residents, shielded patients and over 70s.
Great day leading my team vaccinating 70+ yesterday and today. Finished all our ABC PCN care home residents, care staff and majority of 70+. Will complete Extremely vulnerable shielded patients Cohort next week when vaccines delivered.
