Pulse’s final issue has gone out with a bang, focusing on the past, present and future of Pulse and general practice. In this extra special edition, we’ve gone back to broadsheet size, which is how Pulse was published for the majority of its time in print. We have also mimicked the style from our very first issue in 1960.

Pulse: Past, present and future

The Pulse: Past, present and future issue is also dotted with front covers from yore, many of which still have relevance. We have articles on the major clinical developments of the last 65 years, chosen by the RCGP and written by luminaries of general practice. We look at the origins of Pulse and the incredible life of its first editor.

In our focus on current general practice, we have an exclusive interview with the GPC England chair on the current state of the profession, and have a special column from Chris Morris, one of Britain’s greatest ever satirists and the son of two GPs.

For the future section, we look at some outlandish and not so outlandish predictions, consider what part AI will be likely to play in general practice and take the views of the next generation of GPs.

Every day over the month of February, we will publish a new article on PulseToday as part of the ‘Pulse in Print’ series, including all the copy from the issue plus much much more.

The team has already been inundated with requests for copies of the print issue and it is likely to prove to be a collector’s item.
