The Medical Chambers
Now in partnership with NB Medical, The Medical Chambers (formerly Yorkshire Medical Chambers) has been rebranded to better reflect the areas in which we work and our desire to support freelance General Practitioners and primary care services.
The Medical Chambers exists to support freelance medical professionals to deliver the highest quality care to primary care services and ultimately their patients. Practices know a Chambers' doctor will be reliable, punctual and of high quality. Word of mouth is the best way to build a sustainable and successful business and we rely on this to attract new practices and members.
Continuing our ethos of ‘for GPs by GPs’, we have partnered with FourteenFish which was cofounded by a GP who wanted to provide an easy-to-use Appraisal Toolkit for Healthcare Professionals which removed the stress of preparing for an appraisal. The FourteenFish Appraisal Toolkit is easy to navigate, intuitive and user friendly. FourteenFish are offering a 15% discount on their Appraisal Toolkit for all NB Medical customers, and you can now sync all your NB Medical CPD seamlessly to your FourteenFish account.
Workforce management has never been easy, but now with Federations and Primary Care Networks sharing an increasingly mobile and flexible workforce across different organisations it has become a lot more complex. To help to make it easier for you and your partner organisations, we are delighted to be partnering with ImpaxHub to provide you with a simple solution.
ImpaxHub is a workforce management tool that allows you to manage staff across different organisations. It can help with the difficulties surrounding the management of finding cover for extended hours services, out of hours and ad hoc temporary staffing. ImpaxHub is GP led and has over 10 years’ experience in designing and developing workforce management systems combined with a vast knowledge of working in the NHS Environment.
Clarity Appraisal Toolkit Integration
We are delighted to be working in partnership with Clarity Informatics, GPs can now accumulate their learning through our extensive range of NB educational resources, and then choose to instantly upload their CPD credits into Clarity’s market-leading Appraisal Toolkit.
Clarity TeamNet - Sharing information and learning
Clarity and NB Medical are also collaborating to make it easier for GPs to complete their CPD by making NB’s educational resources available via Clarity’s new online information-sharing platform for primary care, TeamNet. This web-based resource allows GPs, practice managers and CCGs to share essential information from a multitude of sources, including CQC compliance, CPD records, clinical decision support and appraisal evidence.
As part of the partnership, NB Medical will provide educational content for GPs via the TeamNet portal. Practices that sign up for TeamNet will gain automatic and direct access to NB Medical’s educational resources
Medical Skills Courses
Sharing our philosophy of 'By GPs for GPs' we are excited to be working with our partners at Medical Skills Courses. For many years our delegates have asked us, if as well as our Hot Topics and other ‘knowledge’ courses we could provide practical, skills-based courses in Minor Surgery and Joint Injection. This is exactly what our GP colleagues at Medical Skills Courses provide. Their courses are small group, hands on, fun and practical but academically rigorous and receive outstanding feedback (99% of delegates say they would recommend to a colleague). The courses are fully accredited and will allow you to meet and demonstrate standards as mandated by NHS England (to cover levels 1, 2 and 3 of the Minor Surgery DES) and many CCGs.
We are very excited about this collaboration and as more and more minor surgery, dermatological and MSK procedures need to be done in primary care we are confident that these courses will help you to keep your practical skills up to speed and deliver better patient care.
GP Horizon is a closed, private and supportive forum for professional discussion between GPs accessible via their web-site and App on iOS / Android. It is for registered GPs only, and is a safe space where GPs can ask questions and share clinical and non-clinical problems and issues with fellow GPs . Founded by GP, Rima Aboud, who found that although GPs work in teams she often found her work solitary and wanted the opportunity to tap into that huge pool of experienced GPs to ask questions in a secure environment.
Our charity partner Health Poverty Action works with incredible health professionals in 17 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America. Often the circumstances in which they work are incredibly challenging; a lack of resources, geography and political isolation make it increasingly difficult for them to do their jobs.

Medcast is one of Australia’s leading online medical educators, made up of experienced Medical Educators, Educational Technologists, Multimedia eLearning Developers and IT experts. The Company is focussed on using cutting edge technology to deliver engaging, high quality training and professional development for the health sector, with a particular focus on GP training and GP continuing professional development.
