Help us make Pulse Live your event

GPs have decided practice business hot topics, clinical updates and debate on the future of general practice must form the core of the Pulse Live agenda.

Pulse Live – the new annual event for general practice – will be held in Birmingham on 30 April and 1 May 2013 and is free to attend for GPs and practice managers who book by 31 December*. You can book for just one day or both and make your final decision when the topical programme is finalised in the New Year. One-day attendance will earn 6 CPD hours and two days, 12 CPD hours.

The event is being supported by the 22-strong Pulse Live Advisory Board of grassroots GPs, practice managers and high-profile leaders of the profession, including RCGP chair Professor Clare Gerada, pioneering east London GP Dr Sam Everington and GPC deputy chair Dr Richard Vautrey.

At its inaugural meeting at the Pulse offices in London last month, the board planned three conference streams:

Your Practice: practice business and finance skills and profit-making tips

Your Patients: quick-fire clinical updates on a wide-range of conditions

Your Future: practical advice and debate on the future of general practice and examples of best-practice strategies to help you survive.

Pulse Live is your event so book now at and get involved. On booking your free place you will be invited to submit ideas for topics and speakers.


12 CPD hours: Attending this conference is worth 12 CPD credits towards the 50 annual credits you must build up for appraisal
