Inside Our GP Event: What GP’s Need to Know About Women’s Health

Last week, we held our third GP event at Google HQ in partnership with MyLocumManager and Echo. The event was one in a series of inspirational CPD gatherings for busy General Practitioners and featured talks from three leading healthcare professionals.

The Event Rundown

Continuing Professional Development can sometimes feel like a culture of performativity which sees you jumping through hoops in already busy working life. We’re on a mission to change this. By co-ordinating expert-led talks in exceptional venues, we want you to be learning something new, be inspired, and most importantly, have a great time!

This particular event took place at Google’s incredible King’s Cross Headquarters, where leading gynaecologists  Mr James Nicopoullos, Professor Christina Fotopoulou and Clinical Director at Echo, Alistair Murray discussed women’s health, from fertility to menopause and what you, as a GP, need to look out for. This fantastic event welcomed nearly 200 GPs who attended in the pursuit of extra knowledge and stayed for some serious networking, with drinks and snacks kindly provided by Google’s chefs!
