Congratulations to Crail Medical Practice. 

BHF National Team of the Year Award 2018

Crail medical practice won the BHF National Team of the Year award in June, which was held in Manchester. Representatives Chrissie Stuart, Lisa Wilson and Rachel Bruce were delighted to collect the award on behalf of the team. Lisa said “we’re all still in shock that we won, it was unexpected. We were so grateful just to be nominated and to be able to attend such a lovely event.

I think we are so happy to be able to give our patients the extra support and care they require and also that the practice as a whole has come together to make positive changes in new ways to improve patients overall health and wellbeing”.

That the Parliament congratulates the team at Crail Medical Practice, which is in the Parkhead area of Glasgow, on being named Team of the Year at the British Heart Foundation (BHF) Alliance awards; notes that it works to support its patients to make different lifestyle choices to help them build a more positive future in an area that has higher than average levels of heart and circulatory disease and significantly lower than average life expectancy; acknowledges that the practice has adopted new approaches to managing long-term conditions, such as by offering a significant emphasis on increasing physical activity, including a weekly walking group; believes that its efforts have resulted in improvements in confidence and social interaction in patients, as well as increasing their energy levels and helping them to participate more in exercise, and commends the team on aiming to ensure that people in the area receive the best possible care in a way that breaks down barriers.
