Primary Health Care specialist group: Specialist interest meetings
Clinical Computing Special Interest Group (CLICSIG) meetings are only for PHCSG and FCI members, with the occasional invited guest, and are run under the Chatham House rule.
“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 (CLICSIG) 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 and FCI members, with the occasional invited guest, and are run under the Chatham House rule. The usual format is:
- meet on Friday evening from 18:00 onwards
- dine at about 20:00
- get into the agenda proper on Saturday at 09:00, finishing at 16:00 in the afternoon
Saturday-only attendees are welcome. We also have a limited number of places to join the conversation virtually.
Any member can suggest ideas for a special interest meeting whether the topic is clinical or more widely health informatic related. Where possible the outcome of the meeting is published and will be accessible on this page.
