#myGPteam celebrates the outstanding work of GP teams across the UK

Last week GPonline launched its #myGPteam initiative to recognise the contribution GPs and their teams have made during the pandemic. There's still time for you to take part, but here we share some of the results so far.

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.

Jennifer Crozier, a complex care nurse from Stalybridge Primary Care Network (PCN) in Greater Manchester, highlighted how teams in her network had worked together to deliver the vaccination campaign.

Dr Gabrielle Macaulay a GP in Essex paid tribute to some 'fabulous women' – a team of administrators, nurses and doctors – who have worked together throughout the pandemic.

Dr Ursula Brennan, a GP in Belfast, highlighted how her practice and other colleagues across the city came together to set up the Primary and Community Care COVID-19 Centre, which provides care to patients with the virus in the community.

Meanwhile, Dr Liz Galloway a GP in Surrey, wanted to recognise the hard work that has happened across general practice during the past 12 months.

Former RCGP president Dr Mayur Lakhani also used the campaign as a chance to recognise primary care teams for their contribution to the vaccination programme.

While Dr Simon Hodes celebrated a list of successes that his team has had during the panedemic, including adopting new technology, maintaining core services and totally changing the way they worked virtually overnight.

There's still time for you to share your team's achievement and take part in #myGPteam, which we'll be running over the next few week.

To get involved tweet your team’s successes with the hashtag #myGPteam, including a photo if you can, and we will retweet and share across our platforms.
