Look out for an exclusive interview with new GPC negotiator Dr Brian Balmer. Our analysis focuses on the NHS Five Year Forward View (#5YFV) and what it might mean for GPs.


BMA deputy chairman Dr Kailash Chand (@KailashChandOBE) describes the NHS Five Year Forward View (#5YFV) as 'jam tomorrow, not jam today'. Our regular columnists Dr Liam Farrell (@drlfarrell) on wishing it was only a sneeze and Dr Zara Aziz on demand and an exceptional funding request.


Our 10-page section features topics including female genital mutilation; differential diagnoses on skin malignancies; dysphagia; the GP's role in dealing with suicidal patients by the MDU (@the_mdu) and a three-page Clinical Review on glaucoma.


Look out for a step-by-step guide to dealing with staff grievances that forms part of the HR Toolkit subscribers to our sister site Medeconomics (@MedeconomicsUK) can access. 


South east London GP and clown improvisation facilitator Dr David Wheeler (pictured above) is in the interview chair and there are thoughts on the Jawbone Up 24 fitness tracker by GP technology reviewer Dr Richard Harkness.
