I am delighted to welcome you to Guidelines Live 2023, the clinical guidance-focused event for primary care from Medscape UK. Over 2 days, experts in primary care will deliver a wealth of educational sessions to update you on the latest guidance and support you in the delivery of best-practice patient care.  

The programme for this year’s event includes presentations on a diverse range of subjects, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, care of elderly people, paediatrics, dermatology, and women’s health, covering topics common in everyday practice as well as hot topics in primary care. 

This digital companion edition of Guidelines was created to enhance your experience of Guidelines Live 2023, and features a selection of recently published Guidelines summaries of clinical guidance that align closely with topics on the agenda at the event.  

You can find more than 300 concise summaries produced specifically for primary care practitioners at If you’re not already a member, sign up today to access the latest guideline summaries, tools, and resources to support your practice—it’s free for UK-based healthcare professionals. 

The opportunity for continuing professional development is one of the main reasons why primary care practitioners attend Guidelines Live. To support you to get the most out of the expertise on offer, we have created a new Reflection record—a downloadable, interactive PDF to aid you as you reflect on your learning in each session. 

On behalf of the WebMD UK team, I hope you find Guidelines Live 2023 an informative and enjoyable experience, and I look forward to seeing you there.
