ফারজানা হোসেইন-২০১৯ সালের ২৯ নভেম্বর এওয়ার্ড পেয়েছিলেন
আজকে ফেসবুকে এবং দেশের সব পত্র পত্রিকায় ফারজানা হোসেইন বর্ষসেরা ডাক্তার অ্যাওয়ার্ড নিয়ে তথ্যের গড়মিল উপস্থাপনের জন্য এই লেখা।
প্রকৃতপক্ষে, ফটোগ্রাফার রেনকিন ২৯ জুন ২০২০ এনএইচএস এর ৭০ বছর পুর্তী উপলক্ষে ১২ জন জিপি, (নার্স, ক্লিনার সহ), নিয়ে পোট্রেট করেন, যা ব্রিটেনে বিলবোর্ড আকারে এনএইচএস প্রচার করছে-সেখানে আমাদের ফারজানা হোসেইন সেই ১২ জনের একজন.২৯ জুন এনএইচএস নিজস্ব ওয়েবসাইটে এবং আইটিভি সেই সংবাদ প্রচার করে। এখন বিলবোর্ডে রেনকিনের সেই পোট্রেট শোভা পাচ্ছে।
আরেকটি প্রকৃত তথ্য হলো ফারজানা হোসেইন ২০১৯ সালের ২৯ নভেম্বর পার্ক প্লাজা হোটেলে ব্রিটেনের জিপি(জেনারেল প্র্যাকটিস) পরিচালনার পালস সার্জারি পরিচালনার সাফল্য হিসেবে পালস জিপি অব দ্য ইয়ারের পদক গ্রহণ করেছিলেন। পালস টুডেতে সেই সংবাদ প্রকাশিতও হয়েছিল। ফারজানার সাথে সেই সময় ডাঃ এমা লাডস, ডারওয়েন হেলথ কেয়ার, সারাহ হার্ডম্যান(প্র্যাকটিস ম্যানেজার হিসেবে)ও এওয়ার্ডে ভুষিত হয়েছিলেন। ২৯ নভেম্বর ২০১৯ এর সেই সংবাদটি এখনো প্র্যাকটিস বিজনেসে আপডেট এডিটেড ভার্সনে রয়েছে।
কিন্তু গতকাল ও আজকের সংবাদে ফটোগ্রাফার রেনকিনের এনএইচএস পোট্রেটের সেই বিশাল কাজটিকে ডাক্তার ফারজানার বর্ষসেরা ডাক্তার হিসেবে সংবাদ প্রকাশ হচ্ছে, যা রেনকিনের ও এনএইচএসের কাজকে ভিন্নখাতে নেয়ার ভুল তথ্য ছড়ানো হচ্ছে।
ফারজানা হোসেইন একজন ভালো ডাক্তার এবং আমাদের সবার গর্ব। রেনকিনের এনএইচএসের পোট্রেটে তিনি অংশ নিয়েছিলেন সেটা তিনি নিজে টুইট করে জানিয়েছেন একই সময়ে।
ফারজানা ২০১৯ সালে পালস জিপি অব দ্য ইয়ার বা বর্ষসেরা জিপি এরকম হলেই অধিকতর তথ্যসমৃদ্ধ হতো-যদিও সেই সংবাদ অনেক পুরনো(কমপক্ষে ৮ মাস পুরনো)।
NHS staff celebrated in ‘life changing’ portraits by celebrity photographer Rankin
Celebrated portrait photographer Rankin, who has shot hundreds of famous faces including the Queen and Kate Moss, has said his latest project photographing hospital workers on the frontline of the coronavirus crisis moved him to tears.
The photographer travelled round the country at the height of the pandemic to take pictures of 12 people playing a vital role in the NHS response to mark the anniversary of the health service.
London GP Farzana Hussain on what it was like being photographed by Rankin
The portraits include a cleaner, porter, pharmacist, nurse, midwife and 111 call handler, as well as an ICU consultant, midwife, paramedic and IT worker.
The collection will be showcased around the country on billboards, at bus stops and at the Piccadilly Lights in Piccadilly Circus to mark the 72nd anniversary of the NHS.
One of the GPs photographed was London GP Farzana Hussain who told ITV News the experience was “life changing”.
“It’s fantastic to think that Rankin photographed the Queen, Kate Moss, and then me,” Dr Hussain said.
“It was absolutely amazing. And what a tribute, not just to me, but to the hard work of all the GPs across the country.
“It’s just breathtaking.”
Rankin himself worked for the NHS as a theatre porter in twenties and said it was those memories that inspired him to “do something to be part of the solution” during lockdown.
To capture the pictures safely, he photographed his subjects from behind plastic sheeting, as well as using social distancing and cleaning procedures.
Rankin said it was a hugely emotional experience for him and there “were a couple of times where I almost cried”.
He paid tribute to the key workers he photographed saying he had previously “not thought about them having to go home and deal with this trauma on their own”.
“Everyone had a different story and they were all so upbeat. They were all so positive and the one thing that really was the same with everybody was (saying) ‘I’m not a hero’, not one of them said: ‘I’m a hero’, the humility that they all shared was incredible.
“I was really inspired but there were a couple of meetings where I got a bit teary.”
All portraits have been donated by Rankin to the NHS. The full selection of portraits and their stories can be found at www.england.nhs.uk/rankin.

‘Inspiring’ GP principal in London named GP of the Year
Dr Farzana Hussain, who works at the Project Surgery in Newham, was presented with the prize at tonight’s General Practice Awards in London.
She was praised for her efforts in quality improvement, streamlining appointment processes and her work with pharmacists to free up GP time.
Dr Hussain’s colleague at Project Surgery, Dr Iram Ali, nominated her and said she is an ‘inspiration and excellent role model’ for everyone around her.
The judges noted Dr Hussain’s dedication to her 4,500 patients, staff and local community. They highlighted that she is one of the only GPs in Newham to share GP records with a community pharmacist, enabling safe joint working in the borough’s latent tuberculosis service.
Dr Hussain said: ‘I am so chuffed. It’s just such a morale boost. I know we work for our patients, but something like this is just such a lovely external appreciation. I feel quite emotional actually. I just feel on top of the world and that response in there was just absolutely beautiful.’
The awards night also saw Dr Emma Ladds named the GP Trainee/Rising Star of the year (sponsored by Healius) for her academic work and initiative at her surgery, Summertown Group Practice in Oxford for leading a frailty-focused project to improve communication between primary and secondary staff, which involves recoding potentially frail patients.
Academic and clinical colleagues praised Dr Ladds for her ‘invaluable’ work in all aspects of primary care, both as part of the Next Generation GP cohort – a programme for early-career GPs looking to future leadership roles – and her teaching role at the University of Oxford.
Dr Ladds said: ‘I had no idea I was going to win. I am totally over the moon about it but completely overwhelmed. There are so many amazing GP trainees who do such incredible things and I just thought I had no chance, but I’m so proud that the projects I have have been recognised.’
The award for GP Team of the Year went to the Darwen Healthcare Team and the Practice Manager of the Year Award (sponsored by PSUK) was won by Sarah Herdman from Chiswick Health Practice in West London.
Awards were also given to primary care networks, sponsored by NHS England, for their efforts in collaborative and community work since going live in July.
The PCN of the Year award went to Lancashire-based Healthier Fleetwood Neighbourhood (Fleetwood Primary Care Network) and Best PCN Newcomer of the Year was awarded to NeoHealth Primary Care Network in North Kensington, London.

GP of the Year – Dr Farzana Hussain
This east London GP has been named Pulse’s GP of the Year, in recognition of the forward-thinking care she provides in the face of challenging circumstances.
Dr Farzana Hussain was presented with the prestigious accolade at the General Practice Awards, run by Pulse and our sister titles, on 29 November at Park Plaza Westminster Bridge in London.
Dr Hussain has been acknowledged for her resilience after being left as the sole partner following the death of a colleague at The Project Surgery in Newham. She has improved access to appointments in an area that otherwise has one of country’s the lowest patient satisfaction rates.
Praised for her ‘inspiring courage, hunger and curiosity for learning’, Dr Hussain said: “I know we work for our patients, but this is just such a lovely external appreciation.”
GP Trainee of the Year/Rising Star – Dr Emma Ladds
Dr Emma Ladds has been singled out as our GP Trainee of the Year. This award, sponsored by Healius, honours her smooth integration of daily practice and academic research.
Dr Ladds, who is training at Oxford’s Summertown Group Practice, divides her professional interests between Compassionate Communities, leading a frailty-focused project to improve communication between primary and secondary care, and the wellbeing of patients with complex needs, drawing inspiration from her masters in public health from Harvard.
Also a GPST3 academic clinical fellow and tutor at the University of Oxford, Dr Ladds supports new GPs via Next Generation GP. Having assumed she didn’t stand a chance in the awards, Dr Ladds was overwhelmed with pride that her projects, described as ‘invaluable’, had won recognition.
PCN of the Year and Best PCN Newcomer of the Year – Healthier Fleetwood Neighbourhood/NeoHealth
Last year saw the introduction of primary care networks into the GP contract, and Pulse was inundated with nominations of a high calibre from both new and established networks for its two categories, both sponsored by NHS England.
The PCN of the Year accolade was taken back to Lancashire by Healthier Fleetwood Neighbourhood, which won plaudits for integrating the disciplines of healthcare professionals and local authorities, contributing strongly to a dramatic reduction in hospital visits among its ‘socially disadvantaged’ community of approximately 30,000.
Meanwhile, Best PCN Newcomer of the Year went to NeoHealth Primary Care Network of North Kensington.
Since its establishment in June 2019, the PCN has been praised for efforts to improve the lives of COPD patients – notably through better identification and management.
GP Team of the Year – Darwen Healthcare Team
Collaboration was in evidence across the entire primary care workforce last year, with the birth of PCNs the most obvious example. But, proving that there’s still nothing like traditional teamwork, GP Team of the Year was one of the most hotly contested categories at this year’s ceremony.
It was a good night for the winner, the Darwen Healthcare Team, with its nursing division scooping the Practice Nursing Award, while its wider PCN was also shortlisted.
The team’s quality-improvement efforts are evidenced in areas as diverse as pre-diabetes, cervical screening and stroke pathways, while it also equipped patients with greater confidence to manage their own health.
Staff member Julia Mullaney recounted that this was her first attendance at the General Practice Awards, and revealed the team’s shock at its success.
Practice Manager of the Year – Sarah Herdman
Practices are so much more than GPs alone – and would crumble without the practice managers ensuring their smooth running. This was proven by the submissions for Practice Manager of the Year, sponsored by PSUK.
While all nominees were deserving of merit, it was Sarah Herdman of west London’s Chiswick Health Practice who piped the rest to take the prize. Lauded for channelling her energies into saving 600 hours of GP time a year, Sarah embraced the trials that accompany leadership roles, collaborating with NHS Hounslow CCG at the same time as heading the practice managers’ forum in the local area.
All in all, Sarah was credited as having ‘transformed’ her practice, by driving ‘positive practice-wide change’ with a ‘determined, innovative, can-do attitude’.
