Digital health is one of the NHS priorities and the BCS PHCSG (British Computer Society Primary Health Care Specialist Group) want to help.

You will get a free lunch in a fabulous setting and:

  • hear how one group uses practice data to examine flow through the practice
  • discuss patient record access and cybersecurity with colleagues from NHS England and Digital
  • consider the importance of data quality to your practice

"Bridging the gap between knowledge and better care"

Many innovations struggle to gain traction in general practice. As we hear about AI, prediction models, we’d like to consider the barriers to getting them out into practice supporting those at the front line.

If you are interested in technology/informatics and would like to consider how it might impact general practice, PCNs and position general practice well in your ICS, this is the conference for you. Attendees include researchers, academics, practicing and retired GPs, nurses, students, practice managers, other primary care staff, suppliers to primary care, RCGP and NHS staff including NHS Digital.

Conference is intimate and works under Chatham house rule so that we can have open conversations in a safe environment.

The conference will start at 09:30 on Friday 11 November. We are delighted to present two keynotes this year, Professor Niels Peek from University of Manchester and Professor Jack Dowie from London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
