What to expect?

Each event features a multi-stream agenda delivered by expert speakers, a vibrant exhibition and the chance to network with hundreds of colleagues. Specifically designed for GPs and GPs only, these events allow you to tailor your day to meet your personal CPD and professional needs, ensuring you make the most of your precious day away from surgery. Whether it is clinical updates, survival skills, or safeguarding tips that you are looking for, you are guaranteed to find the answer at Pulse LIVE.

Your Practice

This stream will focus on your professional development and that of your practice. With new developments in the General Practice Forward View, Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships and developing the GP workforce, this stream is your go-to for NHS updates and professional development.

Your Patients

Focusing on implications from the latest NICE guidance, new treatment options and perennially challenging conditions, this stream will feature fast-paced, bite-size updates on a range of clinical areas.

Your Skills

These longer sessions will use group work, quizzes and case-based learning to focus in more depth on a clinical area. With limited capacity, you will have the chance to put your questions to the experts and get the answers you need.

Simulation Training

Small, interactive group workshops on key training requirements such as BLS, Anaphylaxis and Acute presentations.
