Look out for coverage from our sister site Inside Commissioning's first conference at the RCGP's headquarters in central London on Wednesday and the results of an exclusive investigation into refusal of treatment requests. Read an exclusive interview with west London GP Dr Anna Martin who spent Christmas and New Year treating Ebola patients in Sierra Leone, west Africa (The patients who recovered left the ward through a disinfectant shower and to a chorus of drums and song, adding a paint handprint to the survivor's wall that became a symbol of hope to patients and staff alike).


RCGP chairwoman Dr Maureen Baker (@MaureenRCGP) reflects on our #ChoosingGeneralPractice entries. BMA deputy chairman Dr Kailash Chand (@KailashChandOBE) calls for the market approach to healthcare to be scrapped.


Subjects covered include expanded newborn blood spot screening; five tips for managing suspected Ebola patients by MDU (@the_MDU) medico-legal adviser Dr Carol Chu; and how to get the most out of your GP trainee e-portfolio by RCGP e-learning development fellow Dr Toni Hazell (@tonihazellgp).
