Congratulations to SSP Health Director Dr Shikha Pitalia who has been named in the Manchester Power 100 list.
The list profiles the most influential people in the Greater Manchester area and includes business people, politicians, music idols and sportsmen and women, as well as those involved in the arts and public service.
Dr Pitalia appears at number 54 in the list – one above Manchester United player Marcus Rashford!
The entry highlights SSP Health as the “largest provider of primary care GP services in the North West of England, one of only three such organisations in England serving more than 100,000 patients”.
Dr Pitalia is the only doctor or healthcare professional in the list and it also names her as Secretary of the British International Doctors’ Association, Wigan Division.
Dr Pitalia said: “It is lovely to be honoured in this way but more importantly it puts SSP Health more firmly on the map in terms of our importance to primary care in the North West of England.
“Greater Manchester has always been SSP Health’s heartland and we have been at the forefront of the fast-paced changes in primary care which has been seen in recent years across the city region.
“It is our continued commitment to excellence in healthcare – which is ingrained in everyone at SSP Health – that is being highlighted in this entry.”
