TOP doctors and nurses from the Isle of Wight were commended at an awards ceremony, held at Cowes Yacht Haven this month.

Dr Mira Hueppe of St Helens Medical Centre was named GP of the year and Ann Pitman of East Cowes Medical Centre was practice nurse of the year.

The medical and admin staff at Shanklin Medical Centre were named team of the year and Carisbrooke Health Centre was practice of the year.

Sarah Dugdale of Argyll House Surgery, Ryde, was named practice manager of the year and Gitta Jenvey assistant practice manager at St Helens Medical Centre was employee of the year.

The leadership award was presented to Dr Simon Giles of Shanklin Medical Centre and Dr Tina Freytag, who recently retired from Cowes Medical Centre, received a special recognition award.

The ceremony was organised by the Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), the body responsible for buying and monitoring the Island's health services.

More than 280 GPs, practice nurses and primary healthcare staff attended the event and voted for the winners on the night.

IW CCG chair Dr John Rivers said: "This has been a fantastic way to celebrate the CCG’s first anniversary.

"As the body responsible for the overall improvement of healthcare on the Island it is important we recognise the devotion and high quality of care being delivered by those who work in general practice surgeries — both individuals and teams — as well as those who work hard to commission the best possible healthcare services for Islanders."

Further awards were presented to members of the IW CCG for their outstanding commissioning work.

But these people have made the patient the centre of attention that's why their work has been recognised.

Maybe I did not explain my view t very well, sorry. I just meant that the patient should be at the centre of attention,not those whose job it is to take care of the patient.

All very well self congratulation and I am sure these fellow humans beings do a very good job,-but what about patient of the year?
They are the ones that have to put up with the often uncomfortable treatments and painful medical treatments conditions.

The doctors and nurses chose that career-the patients did not choose their suffering and often have the most courage and should be recognised too.
