Darwen Healthcare Wins Two Prestigious National Awards
GP Practice Awards 2019
The Darwen GP Nursing Team was shortlisted from GP Practice Nursing Teams throughout England and at the London Awards Ceremony on 29 November 2019 were selected as the Winner of this prestigious award for their innovative and quality work, especially involving those patients with Frailty, Dementia, pre-diabetic, Stroke/TIA, Cervical, Bowel and Breast Screening and COPD. We are so proud of their dedication, knowledge, skills and the national recognition achieved.
Not to be outshone by the Nursing Team, all of the Darwen Healthcare Practice Team were recognised for their commitment to our patients and especially for the pioneering work being done in developing a new clinical model within the practice utilising Advanced Clinical Nurse Practitioners, Physician Associates, Paramedics and Clinical Pharmacists to support our GP’s. Highlighted was the amazing work we are doing with our colleagues from the DWP and the Darwen Primary Care Network in getting those with long term conditions, especially mental health, back in to the community through volunteering or in a number of cases finding paid employment.
