Former health secretary Jeremy Hunt will set out his vision for the future of the profession at Pulse’s annual flagship event in London later this month.
Mr Hunt, who is now chair of the House of Commons health and social care committee, will deliver the closing keynote address at Pulse LIVE London on 26 April.
He will present a review of general practice as well as his vision for the future of the profession.
Delegates attending the event will also have the opportunity to put questions to the former health secretary.
Day one of the two-day conference will see keynote speeches from BMA GP Committee England chair Dr Farah Jameel and RCGP president Professor Dame Clare Gerada.
This year, Pulse LIVE London will focus on managing public health challenges and updates on a range of crucial themes including the quality and outcomes framework (QOF), the mental health impact of long Covid, earlier cancer diagnosis, LGBTQ+/gender identity inclusion in general practice.
The multi-stream agenda panelled by experts working in both primary and secondary care sectors will also cover the latest best practice guidance, as well as clinical and regulatory updates.
The in-person CPD-accredited conference gathers over a thousand GPs each year, with its digital content consumed by over 40,000 GPs across the UK.
Complimentary tickets are now available for all practising GMC-registered GPs and trainees, and can be booked at http://www.pulse-live.co.uk.
Speaking at a launch event for the campaign last month, the former health secretary said the ‘Uberisation’ of general practice – with continuity being lost in favour of convenience – is the wrong way to go and will harm patient safety and care.
It has been reported that health secretary Sajid Javid is planning his own review of primary care, which could see GPs incentivised to join up with trusts in a model like that in Wolverhampton.
