Greenisland surgery awarded RCGPNI Practice of the Year 2023

The Royal College of General Practitioners, which represents over 1400 GPs across Northern Ireland, is proud to announce that that Old School Surgery in Greenisland has been awarded Northern Ireland GP Practice of the Year 2023.

RCGPNI’s GP Practice of the Year is nominated and judged by patients, to recognise exceptional care that GPs and their practice teams provide for their local community. In a year that has proved challenging for everyone, this recognition has been hugely welcomed.

Linda Taggart, Old School's Practice Manager, commented:

“We are delighted to win this prestigious award and it means a great deal that our patients took time out of their busy lives to nominate us. I am so proud of our fantastic team at Old School, everyone works together and plays their part. Despite the challenges in general practice, our team goes above and beyond to provide care for the community we serve and to be recognised in this way, has given us a real boost."

Dr Ursula Mason, RCGPNI Chair, added:

“It was a pleasure to present the 2023 GP Practice of the Year Award to the compassionate and dedicated staff at Old School Surgery in Greenisland. Given the many pressures in general practice, the fact that almost 100 patients came forward to nominate their GP practice for the exceptional care they provide is truly heartening. A huge congratulation to the fantastic team at Old School Surgery."
