Michael Varnam Award
On 26th October Tracy was presented with The Michael Varnam Award for her outstanding work in the community, well deserved!
The awards were set up by Dr Michael Varnam, a Sneinton GP, who worked tirelessly to help disadvantaged people. The awards were started to help raise awareness of issues with health and inequalities and also to recognise those who dedicate their time and energy to making a change. Sadly Dr Varnam died in 2006 but the awards have continued in his honour.
Set up in 2007 by NHS Nottingham City and partners, the awards take place every year to support and champion those who’re looking out for the rest of us. Dr Michael Varnam’s personal focus was on substance misuse and the homeless community, but the awards are open to anyone helping the population as a whole, or individual people.
