We closed the conference with the Simon Kirby Awards.
Simon Kirby was a practice manager and locality manager in Sheffield. He sadly passed away from ischaemic heart disease in March 2021. He was a much loved and respected practice manager and was held in high regard but was also a good friend to many in the practice management community. He is greatly missed. The awards are in memory of Simon and all other practice managers that are no longer with us but whose work and approach to the job continues to inspire us.
These were our winners!
