The 35-year-old from Honiton, Devon, believed that the profession needed to work on its PR. ‘GPs have been portrayed in a very negative light in certain parts of the media. So I think it is important we become much more savvy about how we communicate.’

Dr McCarron-Nash was the brains behind the BMA’s recent ‘Support Your Surgery’ campaign which resulted in a 1.2 million-signature petition presented to 10 Downing Street in June.
