Axminster is one of four Devon practices shortlisted for the award, along with others in Exmouth, Exeter and Brixham.

Paul Baker, deputy director of primary care for the two Devon clinical commissioning groups, said: “It’s fantastic news that these outstanding GP services have been recognised in this way.

“The fact that these awards are nominated and voted for by local people and patients is especially heartening.”

Voting closes on August 10 with the finalist announced on September 3. To vote visit:
