March issue of Pulse: What is Jeremy Hunt’s game plan?

This month, Pulse looks at the man who in a few months is to become the longest serving health secretary ever.

We analyse what the health secretary’s strategy might be in taking on the medical profession and what it all means for GPs.

We also have five pages looking at the requirements of the new GP contract from April and an investigation into why rising numbers of older people are wrongly being labelled with dementia.

Elsewhere, we have a special report on how GPs can navigate their revalidation successfully. The whole issue contains 3.5 hours of CPD, with the latest key questions on depression, differential diagnoses in cardiology and a feature on how to make the most of practice nurses.

Lastly, we have the first interview with Labour health spokesperson Heidi Alexander MP on primary care issues. She urges the Government to produce an ‘urgent plan’ to boost GP numbers and reveals that Labour may support Saturday opening for GP surgeries.
