Three Cheers for Dr Amy

Congratulations to Dr Amy Small, Class of 1999, whose been shortlisted for GP of the Year at the General Practice Awards which recognises the dedication of primary healthcare professionals in the UK.

The winners of the GP Awards, who are the dedicated GPs, nurses, pharmacists, practice managers and healthcare leaders who are making real change to the lives of patients, will be announced on Saturday 9th December, so we’re keeping our fingers firmly crossed til then.

Amy has been a GP for 15 years, since studying at St George’s Hospital after leaving LEH. She now works as a Locum GP in Sheffield and is a Clinical Advisor for Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland, where she became a champion for those suffering from Long Covid.

She says: “So this came out of left field but am I truly honoured to be nominated for this. I hope it shines a light on Long Covid and ensures that we continue to strive for the best possible care for those who suffer with this disabling condition. We have so much to learn from people who deal with this day in-and-day-out. I hope we remain curious and continue to seek treatments and cures in the months and years to come.”

Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland (CHSS) tweeted that they were thrilled that Amy had been shortlisted and added: “Amy has worked tirelessly to improve the lives of people living with Long Covid and has been absolutely instrumental in the development and delivery of our Long Covid support service. We're delighted she is being recognised for the difference she is making to people's lives.”

As part of her role at CHSS she provided evidence to the Scottish Long Covid Inquiry in Spring 2023 and has taken an active role in Women's Health through education internally and advocacy of women's health issues. She is also a co-host of CHSS’s new podcast about Long Covid.
