Dr Tiffin, a Peterborough GP and Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group’s Adult Mental Health Clinical Lead, was presented with her award at a ceremony at the Royal Lancaster London on 30 November 2017. She was also shortlisted for the General Practitioner of the Year award.
Speaking after her win Dr Tiffin said: “I’m so thrilled to have won the Healthcare Leader of the Year award. The General Practice Awards attract hundreds of entries each year so it is wonderful to have been recognised in this way. I feel honoured to have won but actually this is a tribute to the wider team that has worked so hard with me to improve local mental health services for our patients and carers. I would like to thank the CCG team, our mental health provider CPFT, our local authorities, and third sector services - what a great team effort!”
