One day current issues and update courses for GPs, GP Registrars and Practice Nurses.

'Every GP should attend'

Welcome to GP Update

Directed by Lucy Jenkins and James Cave, The GP Update Course is run entirely by GPs. We trawl through all the journals and do all the legwork to bring you up to speed on the latest issues, literature, research and guidelines in General Practice.

The GP Update Course is designed to be very relevant to clinical practice and to help you meet the requirements for your appraisal and revalidation. We make it all entertaining too - without compromising the content!

The GP Update Course has been accredited by the RCGP since February 2012 and is now the only one of its type to be completely free from pharmaceutical company sponsorship.
