Adapting to survive: Pulse Live Delegates to Hear How Practices Can Thrive

Critiquing your practice from a patient’s perspective and developing a flexible, multi-skilled team are two key elements to delivering a successful practice in an increasingly challenging environment, LexacomDigital Dictation Managing Director and former practice partner, Dr Andrew Whiteley will tell delegates at Pulse Live on 1st May.

Dr Whiteley will be addressing the sold-out two-day conference, to discuss Adapting to survive: Five steps to a successful practice in a changing NHS. Based on his 15 years as a partner in a busy medical practice, and five years as a local PCT/consortium executive member, Dr Whiteley will be advising GPs on how to redesign services and systems to meet the growing demands of today’s clinical environment, covering everything from service design to project management, communications to use of technology.

Taking place at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, Pulse Live offers GPs, practice managers and primary care managers the latest thinking in practice business and clinical excellence, as well as important guidance on the changes being made to the NHS.

Lexacom Digital Dictation will be exhibiting at Stand 18 across the two days, where delegates will have the opportunity to learn more about the role digital dictation software can play in helping practices provide a more efficient, accurate and reliable service to patients. On display will be the company’s recently launched Lexacom Mobile app, together with the latest Lexacom 3 software, which offers integration with all leading clinical systems, multi-site information sharing and advanced management and reporting functions.

Dr Whiteley said “Having worked as a GP for over 15 years, with responsibility for a number of service redesign projects, I feel passionate about helping doctors find ways to deliver their services as effectively and efficiently as possible to directly benefit patients. It was that passion which led me to develop digital dictation many years ago which has gone on to benefit thousands of practices and hospitals.

“I look forward to meeting delegates and discussing the five steps I believe should be considered as practices and hospitals look to operate more effectively and improve their service to patients,” Dr Whiteley continued.


Notes to editors

Lexacom’s Talk and Type digital dictation software enables doctors and other clinicians to quickly and easily record and prioritise accurate dictations for instant dispatch to their secretary for transcription. Secretaries benefit from high quality sound recording and can manage their workload more effectively, knowing instantly which dictations are urgent or routine.

Lexacom’s latest software, Lexacom 3, offers a host of new features including reporting functions which enable referrals to be tracked and audited, and secure mobile working so dictations can be done anytime, anywhere – even while on home visits or ward rounds.

Pulse Live is a new two-day national event for GPs and practice managers, created by Briefing Media, publisher of Pulse magazine and Pulse Today. The launch of Pulse Live coincides with the crucial time when CCGs go live, taking control of £80 billion of the NHS budget and perhaps changing the role of the GP forever. Delegates participating in the event will earn 14 CPD hours.
