Our GP General Update masterclass is designed for GPs of all grades, to help you keep up-to-date with the latest developments in primary care and earn valuable CPD points for appraisal and revalidation.

My first time on a BMJ masterclass – will be returning. Very informative and well organised with excellent communication and time keeping! Received copy of slides in pdf mode and was able to make notes on that on my laptop instead of using word – loved it! GP General Update, February 2019

 

Excellent speakers, relevant and helpful. There was something useful to take from every lecture GP General Update, February 2019
