​Let us know what you think of our new-look site

We are continually thinking of new ways to help you keep up to date with all that is happening in general practice, and today we release the latest upgrade of the Pulse website, which makes it easier than ever to get your dose of the latest news and advice on the go.

The website has been redesigned to be easier to navigate and use on mobile devices. The new site still contains all your favourites, such as breaking news, in-depth analysis and our stable of star bloggers, including Copperfield, Nabi and the surreal Through The K Hole.

But now the website will adapt to your mobile device, so you can effortlessly read, comment on and share all our free online content using your tablet or smartphone.

We have introduced a new ‘hot topics’ menu, so that you can find out the latest on the stories that everyone is talking about, as well as a new ‘tea break’ section collecting together the best short-form content on the site, so that you can stay updated in the time it takes to finish your brew between surgeries.

Please take a look around and tell us what you think of the new site. Leave any comments below and let us know about any improvements you would like to see in the future.

  • Another top down reorganisation with no input from grassroots GPs, resulting in much confusion, disgruntlement and threats to go elsewhere. Seems representative enough to me.

  • The comment formatting is very strange. Some comments are indented (with an icon) and others aren't.

  • I agree with the previous contributors. One reason I read pulse on line is because you can see at a glance what is new and what catches your eye. This one is too much like GP magazine which I don't read on line because it is very poor layout.
    If it stays like this, I will stop reading it.

  • Awful. Too much scrolling. Not clear. News articles take up too much web-page space. Prefer previous look.

  • On the whole a nice update - good to see a fully responsive site that works well on numerous devices. This is very readable on tablet or smartphone, although I'd prefer if the adverts didn't break up the content of the articles themselves. If it looks too big on your desktop you can always zoom out a little. Hot topics section is a good idea.

    As previous comment noted, the comments section seems a bit trickier to follow. I would have liked threaded comments, which would be particularly useful due to volume of anonymous posts - threads make it more clear which messages people are replying to.

    Generally though give it a few weeks and we'll all have forgotten what the old site looked like.

  • Ah well, an NHS manager likes it - so that's all right, then. I resent the instruction from him/her to ignore the GPs (I thought this was a GP magazine, no?) who don't like it and might actually use (or stop using) the site for clinical reasons.

    I thought. Pulse had been sabotaged initially ! You know what I mean?( too many enemies, your website being 'bombed' by agent Hunt's guard dogs!)
    Honestly prefer the old way ....

    Hate it! Too much scrolling. Font size too big. Looks like a paper li. Are you trying to cut costs by adopting a newer cheaper format? Keep the old. This is giving me a migraine to navigate. Thumbs down.
