Pre Conference FREE Education Day
10 October 2019, 9.15am - 3.30pm

This day is designed for everyone working in primary care, whatever their knowledge, who would like to get more out of their IT. The landscape of Primary Care is changing with the arrival of Primary Care Networks(PCNs), more working at scale and the increasing reliance on digital solutions.

Data Quality underpins the success of everything digital and we will look at how to keep trash out of your system and how to make a record that will work for all purposes. We’re especially pleased to welcome Martin Bell of the Martin Bell Partnership, previously deputy managing director of EMIS, to speak about Social Prescribing.

PHCSG Annual Conference
11th October 2019, 9:15am - 4:30pm

Digital Health - avoiding the Icebergs

The 39th PHCSG AGM and conference will take place on October 10 / 11th at Billesley Manor Hotel, near Stratford.

Technology is becoming key to delivering high quality care and it is becoming more and more sophisticated with the advance of AI and machine learning algorithms. This conference will look at how we can be sure new digital technologies are safe and some of the pitfalls. Do we give the same scrutiny to digital solutions that we do to drugs and new treatments? With Professor Tony Avery of Nottingham University and Professor Harold Thimbleby of Swansea University amongst our speakers it promises to be a fascinating day.
