The September issue of Pulse magazine, 'How NHS 'direction of travel' will affect GPs', includes a mini redesign following feedback from readers, with easier to read and more accessible features.
This month, Pulse have an exclusive interview with the most senior GP in NHS England, national director for primary care Dr Amanda Doyle - 'How NHS 'direction of travel' will affect GPs'. She reveals that next year’s contract is likely to be a stop gap, that PCNs are ‘going nowhere’ and that the five-year contract has made things ‘tighter’ for practices in England.
We also take an in-depth look at the NHS workforce plan and ask how the Government is going to provide the training capacity needed in general practice to fulfil its commitments to increase the number of GP trainees and medical students.
Our new ‘Big Questions’ feature asks what is going on at the BMA’s GP Committee England, and where it all went wrong for Babylon while we look behind the headlines at a GP’s claim in the Daily Mail that GPs enjoy ‘remarkable privileges’.
In the clinical section, we answer key questions on MS, provide advice on referring to urology and provide a therapeutics update on depression. We also provide advice on running group consultations.
Pulse offers GPs a daily dose of politics and financial news, CPD, cutting-edge investigations, clinical updates, thought provoking debate, and practical business advice, along with updates delivered via regular newsletters and a magazine.
