At the heart of general practice since 1960

GP leaders and grassroots GPs to chart 24 hours in general practice

GPC, LMC and RCGP leads will join a host of grassroots GPs in commemorating the anniversary of the NHS reforms with a snapshot of their working day, which will be revealed on Pulsetoday.co.uk on 1 April.

GPs across the UK will be tweeting, blogging and filming throughout the day to create a picture of what a day in general practice entails, from script-writing to out-of-hours care and house calls to saving lives.

Pulse held a similar event in 2010 for its 50th anniversary, which saw 27 entries from 17 GPs and practice staff.

This year, with interest from famous names - including former RCGP chairs Professor Clare Gerada and Professor Mayur Lakhani - alongside practices across the UK, 24 hours in general practice will be on an even larger scale.

Pulse editor Steve Nowottny says: ‘We want to do it much bigger, and better, and really show the world what British general practice is like in 2014 – warts and all’.

‘Whatever kind of GP you are, wherever you work and whatever you’re doing on the day, we want to hear from you.’

  • This sounds a good idea and would love to get involved. Would also be interesting to see how other practices manage their day, share innovative thoughts on managing demand and show others just how dedicated and caring our profession is. Only difficulty is the link in the article isn't an email address so wonder if this could be remedied so Pulse can be contacted about this project.

  • The email link should work now

  • Pity this wasn't set up 3 years ago - I could have filmed myself resigning from the NHS, packing my bags and emigrating. Ex pat GP
