The second Pulse LIVE conference of the year is taking place today in Birmingham, with a closing address from NHS England’s director for primary care workforce, training and education.
Professor Simon Gregory, recently appointed as a medical director at NHSE following the merger with Health Education England (HEE), will give a speech titled ‘What will the NHS look like in 2040?’
There are also talks on a range of clinical topics, including NICE guidance on head injury, management of persistent fatigue, and screening for Autism spectrum condition.
Dr Farah Jameel, who is on maternity leave as chair of the GPC, will give a speech on the subject of ‘leading with heart’.
Taking place at the National Conference Centre in Solihull, the conference will provide attendees with five hours of CPD across four simultaneous streams.
At Pulse LIVE London, which took place in March, GMC chief executive Charlie Massey used his keynote speech to argue that hurdles must be lifted to admit a ‘sizeable’ pool of SAS doctors who are ‘itching’ to work in general practice and fully utilise their skills.
Pulse 365 LIVE Birmingham is a one-day conference (6 June) with a comprehensive programme covering the latest clinical updates, career development workshops, and policy updates. The event is run by Cogora and is taking place at the NCC Birmingham.
