2011 Award for Quality in Primary Care


Presentation of the 2011 Award for Quality in Primary care

Shropdoc is proud to announce that the 2011 Dr Steve Hugh Award for Quality in Primary Care has been presented to Sister Val Proctor and her team at the Benign Prostate Symptom Assessment Clinic in Ludlow. Prostate health is an increasing problem in the ageing male population and whilst prostate cancer awareness is growing there are a significant number of older men whose quality of life is affected by non-malignant prostate problems too.

Val and her colleagues provide a local examination service which links with the Urology consultant at Shrewsbury hospital to provide first class quality care without the need to travel. The service provides quick, accurate assessment and utilises the internet to ensure that rurality does not affect patients ability to access the services they need.

Shropdoc has been highlighting and celebrating these success stories since 2006 and on this occasion the cash award has been donated to the Shropshire Prostate Cancer Support Group.

“Shropdoc service is in good health

I would like to make a comment on the Shropdoc Service which I have been very impressed with over the past two weeks. The service and attention given by Drs McMurray and Lovell during their visits to my home has been fantastic. Being a senior citizen aged 91, I was very concerned with my state of health. The reassurance and medication given by these two doctors certainly improved my condition. Furthermore, the time taken to visit me was very quick and responsive. I feel some of the bad publicity on the NHS Shropdoc service is not warranted and not a true reflection of the excellent service I received during the past two weekends. Many thanks to all concerned….much appreciated.
