“Medical informatics can and should serve to strengthen the traditional values of family practice, and has a key role to play in improving the quality of primary healthcare provision.”

That’s the core belief of the Clinical Computing Special Interest Group of the BCS PHCSG - a group of GPs, practice nurses, practice managers, computer professionals and others involved in or with primary care, who meet several times a year, at their own expense, to discuss and research the application of IT to the care process.

CLICSIG meetings are only for PHCSG members, with the occasional invited guest, and are run under the Chatham House rule. The usual format is: meet on Friday evening from six o’clock onwards, dine at about eight, and then get into the agenda proper on Saturday at nine o’clock, finishing at four in the afternoon. Saturday-only attendees are welcome.
