At the heart of general practice since 1960

Know an inspirational GP? Nominate them for Pulse's Power 50

Pulse has begun its annual search for the most influential and inspirational GPs in the UK in 2015.

Nominations have opened for the Pulse Power 50, the annual definitive list of the top GPs in the UK. GPs are able to nominate anyone they feel has been influential on general practice in the past 12 months.

This year, Pulse is also looking for local heroes who are the unsung GP champions at the coalface. We’re looking for campaigners and innovators who’ve not yet hit the national press.

Also, we will also be looking at profiling young ‘rising star’ GPs who are the future leaders of the profession and have not yet had a prominent role in medical politics.

  • Influential with whom?
    If with those in power - HMG, DH, NHS England - what evidence is there that they have had any effect whatsoever on changing policies and actions which might appear, to the cynical, to be designed to end general practice in England?
    And before anyone says it, things don't look too rosy in Scotland, Wales or Northern Irelend either!

    Oh dear! I remember this annual "farce". A bit like the Sunday Times Rich List. We end up with the usual suspects, who have, in fact done nothing useful at all based on last year's lot. However they then get this infuriating epithet of "Top Doctor" as in "Top doctor condemns use of paracetamol for pain relief".

    Let's instead have a poll for the 50 most unhelpful GPs in the last year. Now that WOULD be fun.

  • Don't worry, John, nominations are welcome for any members of the 'awkward squad' - all will be considered and the more diverse the pool we have to pick from, the better.

  • Pev - for sharing the reality of GP life far more effectively than Pollyana or anyone at the BMA ever could.

  • yawn - more self congratulatory backslapping and mutual medicopolitical greasy pole shoving for the self-appointed elite and media wannabes who can't hack full time at the coal face and use these other routes to escape. Like I give a flying...

  • Ivan Benett for enthusiasm in the face of every last piece of evidence to the contrary.

  • Dang someone beat me to Ivan Bennett! lol If the comments continue, they will be a better reading than the actual list ;p

    I'll go with Prof Keenan at QOF - for doing things his way and no other way considered.

    Anyone take on the heads of GMC or CQC?
