About NB Medical | NB Medical

NB Medical Education was founded over 20 years ago by doctors Simon Curtis and Phil Nichols. The original aim was to help GP trainees pass their MRCGP exam.

Over 20,000 Healthcare Professionals trained every year

The first ‘Hot Topics’ course was held in London in September 1998 and from those small beginnings has grown today’s business which provides CPD training for over 20,000 Primary Care healthcare professionals per year.

Our presenting team, led by Dr Simon Curtis in Oxford, are all NHS GPs and Nurses who are recognised nationally and internationally within their area of expertise and work tirelessly to maintain a position at the forefront of modern practice.

We continually redesign course content and ensure we align with the latest and most up to date policies, procedures and best practice.

What We Do

As the NHS has evolved NB's offering has also grown and in addition to our signature 'Hot Topics' GP Update course we now also offer live online course webinars in a broad range of specialist subjects, all targeted at the Primary Care workforce. We also provide CCGs, Urgent Care and private organisations with bespoke update courses for their workforce.

Over 100,000 hours of online training every year

We have also recognised that work commitments do not always allow us the time out of practice to attend live courses.

Therefore, we continue to develop our online business and we now offer our courses on-demand too.
