#News

Team GP spent three days in Liverpool reporting from the RCGP annual conference (#RCGPAC). Want to see live videos of speeches by health secretary Jeremy Hunt (@jeremy_hunt) and NHS England chief executive Simon Stevens, their question-and-answer sessions with GPs and exclusive news? We splash on what the recently revealed 2015/16 GP contract means for GPs.

#Opinion

Our leader examines the split between the BMA and RCGP over GPs' future. BMA deputy chairman Dr Kailash Chand (@kailashchandOBE) says the PM's seven-day GP pledge is unrealistic. Our Letters page is dominated by reaction to shadow health secretary Andy Burnham's (@andyburnhammp) plans for GPs to become salaried employees of hospital-led integrated care organisations. Clue: it's not favourable.

#Education

Our Differential diagnoses feature looks at facial lesions, mood changes appears in our Red flag symptoms article and the Viewpoint is about osteoarthritis. MPS (@MPSdoctors) medico-legal advisor Dr Dan Kremer discusses requests for an unfit for court certificate.
