'This prize is a really welcome recognition of the huge amount of hard work that has gone into medical student training over the past year. Yaxley has been renowned down the years for its high-quality medical education and we are delighted to keep this tradition going. A particular thank you must go to our patients for being so supportive and helpful with the students and sharing their stories with them. And finally, many congratulations to Dr Thanki, who thoroughly deserved the individual award for all of his hard work and dedication in supporting the students.'
