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. View and download details of the SIG team members.

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.


The next SIG meeting is due to be held at the 2020 Society for Academic Primary Care Annual Scientific Meeting in Leeds, please see conference pages. More events are planned and this page will be updated accordingly. 

We have a quarterly newsletter which is an opportunity for members to share successes and reach other members of the group.
