Start a Special Interest Group - SIG

How to Start a SIG

If you have an idea for a SIG, you need to submit an application form to SAPC Executive. The proposal must come from an SAPC member. Your application should detail why the topic is relevant to primary care/academic primary care, and why establishing a SIG would be supportive/necessary to take the work forward.

You can download the application form by clicking here.

Completed application forms should be sent to Sue Stewart. Applications are reviewed by the SIG lead (currently Prof Jo Protheroe) before being presented for approval at the next SAPC Executive meeting.

Established SIGs will be required to submit an annual report on their activities by April each year.  Reports will be posted on to the individual SIG webpage.

Groups will only be eligible to apply for an annual bursary once they have been established for a year/submitted one annual report.
