  • Given the growing demands for more accessible specialist health services, the P-CNS is increasingly of the view that people with neurological conditions (whether complex or not) need to have the option of being managed in community. Therefore, to acknowledge and reflect the growing importance that is being placed on delivering community services, the P-CNS has taken the decision to rename. So, by the time you get to this year’s Best Practice, the P-CNS will stand for the Primary care and Community Neurology Society. Although we will have a new logo, which you can see here, it looks much the same as the old with the emphasis still being on P-CNS. Look out for our new website which we will be launching very soon. You will be able to access at

  • The portability and ease of use of the latest generation of point-of-care ultrasound systems mean that they are increasingly being used outside of the traditional hospital setting, with a number of general practitioners now training to use ultrasound for a wide range of applications. Dr Helen Williams, who divides her time between general practice and the Urgent Care Centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich, explained the benefits: "I first became interested in ultrasound in 1999, when I was working in a TOP (termination of pregnancy) clinic and picked up an ectopic pregnancy during a routine dating scan. That case made me realise that ultrasound has so many potential applications, and so I purchased a small portable machine for use in my general practice. I have since used ultrasound in a variety of settings, both in primary care and in hospitals, and currently have a SonoSite Edge® system which travels everywhere with me."
