Shaping the Digital Future of Healthcare: Digital Primary Care Virtual Conference

It is no surprise to hear that 2019 provided one of the most challenging years for general practice, 80% of GPs say long waits for hospital care have increased practice workload, Practice workload has also been pushed up by cuts to social care over the past decade as well as in recent months by rising shortages of medicines.

Nationally, around a quarter of GPs are aged over 55 – but in some areas, more than two in five GPs are in this age category. And as existing GPs continue to reduce their working hours in the face of rising pressure, polling shows that among trainees just one in 20 plans to work full time.

Adjacent to the issues within the general practice workforce funding has also been identified as far too low to cover the current demand. To tackle this the government has promised funding will rise by around £1bn by 2023/24, with a further £1.8bn available to support the formation of primary care networks (PCNs) although many GPs are yet to be convinced.

The patient population is also proving to be an area of concern, as the population ages the complexity in cases increases alongside it, now more than ever we need to be thinking outside the box and focusing on innovation and technology to help ease the strain currently faced by primary care providers.

Our Shaping the Shaping the Digital Future Conference taking place in February 2021 will provide an update on some of the key digital primary care initiatives being implemented across 2020, we will be reviewing the GP IT Futures Programme which is focused on providing more choice, functionality and improved interoperability in the use of IT products.

Other areas of focus for Shaping the Digital Future of Healthcare include:

  • GP data implementation: The GP data implementation service is providing a standard GP data set that will improve the information and insight underpinning research and planning across the NHS.
  • GP connects: The GP connect service connects general practice IT systems so that information can be shared between practices and with other healthcare settings.
  • SNOMED CT in primary care: The implementation of SNOMED CT in primary care ensures that all general practices in England adopt the same standard clinical terminology, SNOMED CT.
  • Primary care support programme: The primary care support programme delivers new functionality for primary care registration management and for the NHS Spine demographics reporting services.

Join us at Shaping the Digital Future we share updates from across 2020 and discuss the key findings from the implementation of innovation in primary care settings.

My colleague and I presented at the NHS workforce conference 2023, 19 September. The support and guidance we received from the Convenzis team in the run up to our presentation slot was great, well timed and perfectly pitched. The event itself, again was expertly organised. The conference was well Chaired by Sean, who was very engaging. As an audience member as well as a panel member, I would definitely work with the Convenzis team again.

Working with Convenzis is a stress-free and a rewarding experience, with fantastic engagement from a highly targeted and relevant audience


I worked with Convenzis, primarily Dan, for the first time this year, putting together a bespoke online event for IBM. He has always been so responsive and accommodating. The team always remained professional and helpful – despite the many demands from our side! They were very keen for us to maximise on the investment and revisit those attendees who had not committed to follow ups.
It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Convenzis and I know there will be more opportunities next year. Looking forward to it!
