The Convenzis Primary Care Conference 2022

10:50 am
09 Nov, 2022
Virtual Event: GoTo

The Convenzis Primary Care Conference series has welcomed over 1000 NHS based primary care leaders, 60 sector-leading guest speakers and 50 innovative and forward-thinking event sponsors. Our switch to virtual following the Covid outbreak provided a well-needed platform to discuss rapid tech scale-up challenges and remote consulting best practices. We look forward to continuing this series and providing key policy led updates and innovation.

“There was a real buzz to this event, with the participants exploring ideas with speakers, but more importantly, actively sharing their experiences with each other in the networking sessions.  It was a pleasure to be involved and I look forward to doing it again!” The Primary Care Foundation

It is no surprise to hear that 2020/ 2021 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.

Issues within the general practice workforce funding have 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 upcoming conference will provide an update on some of the key digital primary care initiatives being implemented across 2020/2021, 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.

What our clients say about us

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!


In view of the recent NHS Oncology Conference organised by CONVENZIS which was sponsored by Pascoe Healthcare Ltd, CONVENZIS exhibited professionalism through credible organisation, invitation of delegates/respectable Speakers and general conduct of the entire conference. This has also shown that CONVENZIS is a great partner in business which is fundamental to ROI of partnering Companies even in the wake of the pandemic.

Pascoe Healthcare

“We’ve worked with the Convenzis team for several years and their events are a regular occurrence for us. Not only is the content always extremely topical, but the speakers are always excellent and the support from the team ahead of and during the events is exceptional. The team are incredibly receptive to feedback and always goes above and beyond – a real pleasure to work with!”


“It has been a pleasure to work with Matt and Dan for the past few events. Everything has always run smoothly and we’ve always managed to gather a large number of interested parties due to the events they have hosted.

They are also very helpful and timely in their responses, which has made working with them very easy “
