Digital Technologies in Primary Care

Hello and welcome to the Digital Technologies in Primary Care SIG.

This SIG is chaired by Helen Atherton, University of Warwick and supported by the leadership team; Dr Jo Parsons, Nicky Thomas and Helen McGowan 

What is the SIG about? 

The SIG has five objectives:

•Build a network of researchers interested in digital technologies use for  healthcare delivery.

•Provide a networking opportunity for researchers from multi-disciplinary backgrounds who are interested in working in digital technologies in healthcare delivery.

•Provide a forum for discussion about the issues associated with research in this area, including the challenges.

•Provide a central point of contact for researchers in academic primary care  looking to find expertise in the application of digital technologies in primary care.

•Bring together digital health researchers from within and outside of NIHR School  for Primary Care Research departments.

Newsletter and events 

We have a quarterly newsletter which is an opportunity for members to share successes and reach other members of the group.  If you are interested in joining the group and receiving our newsletter, please contact the SIG team who can be reached here:

We are holding a meeting at the Society of Academic Primary Care (SAPC) Annual Scientific Meeting 2022 at the University of Central Lancashire in July. It will be run by members of the SIG leadership team Jo and Nicky, and will provide an overview of recent SIG activities, will include a presentation from one of our members, and will give attendees the opportunity to share current and future ideas and explore possible collaborations.
