Pulse PCN Events

The source of practical information for clinical directors

New discussion forums

The team behind the award-winning Pulse magazine and Pulse LIVE events, is proud to announce the launch of Pulse PCN Events, a series of discussion forums specifically created for clinical directors and senior staff supported by the Pulse PCN editorial advisory board.

After the success of the virtual and in-person events in 2021, we are delighted to bring you five face-to-face events in four convenient locations this year: London, Birmingham, Newcastle and Manchester. The events will offer PCN clinical directors and GP Partners the opportunity to revisit the Network DES specifications and hear latest guidance, learn from peer case studies about working with the voluntary community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector and discuss major challenges affecting PCNs and also the individual role of the clinical director.
