LONDON: The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) has announced the inaugural RCP Excellence in Patient Care Awards the results of which will be announced at the Medicine 2016: RCP annual conference in March. This list also included Dr.Saad Khalid Niaz, an eminent Consultant Gastroenterologist from Pakistan.  The mission of the awards is to recognize and promote the impressive work that physicians are doing around the world to deliver patient-centered care through education, policy, clinical practice and research.

Discussing the shortlist Dr. Andrew Goddard, RCP Registrar, saidthat this is the first year that we've held the RCP Excellence in Patient Care Awards and it has been brilliant to see the exceptional standard of submissions by individuals and teams. It demonstrates that everywhere in the NHS, and internationally, there are people at all levels inspiring those around them and using innovative new ways of working in order to drive forward developments in patient care.The quality of submissions was very high and made shortlisting difficult, and the shortlisted candidates should all be seen as winners. We hope that their success will spur others on for next year’s Excellence in Patient Care Awards, which will be launched with new categories at Medicine 2016: RCP annual conference in March 2016.
