MEDICAL staff are celebrating after a surgery scooped an elite national award for patient care.
Moss Valley Medical Practice, Eckington, is one of only nine in the county to earn the Royal College of General Practitioners’ (RCGP) quality practice award. It is given to surgeries that show quality care by all staff.
Michelle Slimm, practice manager, said: “To be included is a real honour.”
The award recognised initiatives such as high breastfeeding rates and organising appointments to fit bus timetables.
An engraved plaque was presented to the team by RCGP chairman Dr Clare Gerada and chief executive Neil Hunt.
