About this event

PHCSG Education Day 2021

“Building a Different Future” Thursday 7th October 2021

at Billesley Manor Hotel

This free day is designed for everyone working in primary care who would like to get more out of IT. The past 18 months has seen a period of unsettling change with unprecedented stress on the NHS, which has radically changed the landscape in primary care.

We will explore how we can take what we have learnt to build a different future for primary care. Delegates will find out how digital innovation has been implemented and adopted with varying success and the associated lessons learnt.

With sessions ranging from effective on-line triage to why data quality is still important, the day promises to be inspiring and thought provoking.

To quote William Gibson “The future is here, it’s just not evenly distributed”. Building on this, the theme for this year’s conference is ‘Doing IT better’ focussing on how we use our knowledge and experience to make the future of IT and digital better. With sessions ranging from how we get evidence into practice, to interoperability and utilising big data, this day has something for everyone working in health informatics.
