Registration from 9.30am

Course start time 10.00am

The GP Update course is very relevant for clinical practice and will help you meet the requirements for appraisal and revalidation

Using a lecture-based format, with plenty of time for interaction, the GP presenters discuss the results of the most important new evidence and guidance and concentrate on what it means to you and your patients in the consulting room tomorrow

To help you prepare for your annual appraisal and revalidation Red Whale have a range of practical tools and offer an online service that tracks your learning throughout the year to avoid those last minute pre-appraisal panics.
They use humour and video clips to illustrate points being made, to keep you focused and awake.

What will be covered?

This one-day course offers a wide-ranging, evidence-based programme, covering the latest guidance and major developments across all areas of general practice: from chronic conditions to Musculoskeletal medicine, from Mental health to Gastroenterology and many more in between.

You’ll also get one year’s FREE subscription to With three times the content of the handbook, it allows you to capture CPD credits as you read on the site and use it in consultations! It also comes with focused learning activities to earn further CPD credits.
