Caring About Carers Awards- deadline extension

The nomination deadline for the “Caring About Carers Awards” has been extended until 20th June. Please advise carers of this change so that they have the opportunity to nominate their GP and practice teams who provide an excellent service to carers.

The Awards are part of the partnership between The Princess Royal Trust for Carers and the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) to raise awareness of the need to support carers in primary care. They will be presented at the RCGP’s Annual Conference in October in front of an audience of more than 1000 GPs. Winners will be selected for each home nation and there will be an overall UK-wide winner. The Trust’s President Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal will sign a certificate for the winning general practitioners and their teams and the prize will also include a commemorative plaque to display in surgeries.

GPs must be nominated by one of their patients to be eligible for an award.

Please see below for guidelines on how carers can nominate their GP.
