Your all-new fortnightly GP isn't out this week but highlights of GPonline.com coverage include leading healthcare lawyer Lynne Abbess on how to ensure your GP partnership is fit for 2013 and your chance to see the first Nobel Laureate to give an eponymous RCGP lecture, Professor Amartya Sen.

Thursday was all about the Leveson report but how could it affect GPs?

Was potential industrial action discussed at the last GPC meeting in the wake of the GMS contract negotiations breakdown?  East Sussex LMC chairman, GPC member, 'geocacher and bird-watcher' Dr Russell Brown (@drbrown1970) wasn't telling but we love the name of his blog.

 

GP and Devon MP Dr Sarah Wollaston (@drwollastonmp) was in uncompromising mood over dispensing practices allegedly insisting on inducements to prescribe.

 

#weekinreview's new favourite media GP Dr Ellie Cannon (@Dr_Ellie) feared she would be up to her elbows in ... well, ...

 

And a *cheerupface* to fellow media medic Dr Roger Henderson (@rogerthedoctor) who wasn't feeling the love.

 

To #weekinreview regular Surrey GP Dr Pete Deveson (@PeteDeveson) for a final Movember lowdown.
