Speaking on this year’s Awards, Dr Pixie McKenna said: “I am honoured to have been asked by GPBuddy to be involved in these awards for the last three years. I never cease to be overwhelmed by the quality of the nominations for the Awards and the high standards of professionalism across healthcare in Ireland today. As a GP who lives and works in the UK, I look forward to the GPBuddy National GP Awards every year as a great way to catch up with some old friends and dear colleagues. It’s always a great night in Dublin and I’m genuinely really looking forward to it so get nominating!”
Barry Downes, Country Manager of Title Sponsor, Affidea, added: “GPs in Ireland do fantastic, admirable work at the coalface of Irish healthcare. These Awards are a unique opportunity for us to recognise their achievements and those of all the healthcare professionals who work tirelessly in our health service day and night for patients across the country. As Ireland’s leading diagnostic imaging provider, we are honoured to be in a position to give something back to our GPs and all those healthcare workers who will celebrate excellence with us, GPBuddy and Dr Pixie McKenna next September.”
Dr Darach Ó Ciardha of GPBuddy.ie concluded: “These Awards are a staple on the annual calendar for GPs and healthcare workers around the country – from the smallest practice in rural Ireland to large multi-doctor primary care centres in the capital. We are very proud and humbled to be in a position to host these Awards and celebrate the achievements of our healthcare workers who are doing amazing work very often in difficult and challenging situations. The excitement around this year’s Awards is huge and we are looking forward to it being our biggest Awards ceremony yet.”
