A retired GP has been honoured by the British Medical Association for her excellent work in publishing.

Dr Gill Summers, who worked as a GP at Sandy Health Centre, Sandy, for 24 years, was awarded Medical Book Reviewer of the Year 2015, by the association.

The accolade was presented at a ceremony held at BMA House, in London, which she attended with her husband Mike Wilmott.

Mr Wilmott said: “She was rather astounded to get it.

“About 300 people were at the ceremony, and as she was to be the last person to receive her award, I could see she was getting a bit nervous!

“I held her hand and she calmed down a bit.”

Dr Summers was presented a certificate by BMA President Elect Professor Sir Al Aynsley-Green KT, on September 3.
