HSJ Awards 2021 Primary Care Networks, GP or
Community Provider of the Year

Provide Community is incredibly proud to have been highly commended in 2021’s prestigious Health Service Journal (HSJ) for ‘Primary Care Networks, GP or Community Provider of the Year’. The awards regularly attract over 1,000 entries across 23 categories, drawing attention to the ‘high-flyers’ of healthcare excellence.

Provide’s entry focused on ‘navigating the pandemic and transforming lives through innovation, care and compassion’, specifically how we rapidly adapted our service delivery to deliver innovative solutions that enabled continued access to healthcare services during the pandemic.

HSJ Editor Alastair McLellan commented; “We believe Provide really holds the value of the HSJ Awards- in terms of best practice, improving patient outcomes, and demonstrating innovation- at the centre of what they do.”
