This month, our new look Pulse magazine focuses on the health secretary’s plan to have GPs working under hospital trusts. We look in detail at how this has been implemented in various pockets of England, how it has affected patient satisfaction and recruitment.

Pulse March issue

The March issue of Pulse magazines provides an analysis of what is happening with the GP contract in England, plus look behind the headlines at a claim GPs are not referring enough suspected cancer cases. We also feature our new Pulse Checker page – a not-entirely-serious news page.

In the clinical section, as we enter spring, we answer key questions on Lyme disease, provide a guide on remote consultations for orthopaedic presentations and avoiding a clinical clanger around thrush.

Elsewhere, in conjunction with Pulse Intelligence we give guides on starting and refining electronic repeat dispensing and appointing a non-clinical QOF lead.
