Dr Lamplugh works in the William Brown Centre in Manor Way, Peterlee, and his colleagues clearly think highly of him.
One wrote: “This doctor is one of the most dedicated doctors in my surgery. He just never says no to his patients. He is constantly squeezing appointments onto his screen and he never turns patients away.
“His patients always come first and he makes phone calls to them at all hours of the day to fit in with their wishes and to follow patients’ welfare. That is dedication.”
But the man himself modestly said: “I have just devoted my life to medicine and I see it as a vocation.
“It is a job that I love to do and I love to do the absolute best for my patients.
“It is important to go the extra mile for them but to get this sort of feedback from the patients and staff is incredible.”
The nomination for Dr Lamplugh added: “He is a big part of our team and is always helpful, courteous and professional. The patients love him.”
