Digital putting GMPCB on the map


Digital lead, Dr Chris Nortcliff, will deliver insights into digital primary care on two occasions in February.

He will represent the PCB in a Health Tech News panel discussion and at the HETT North 2024 exhibition.

Greater Manchester Primary Care Provider Board will be represented on two high profile occasions in the new year with a focus on digital in primary care.

Dr Chris Nortcliff, the PCB’s GP Digital Lead, will make two separate appearances in February.

The first, on 27 February, is a panel discussion organised by Health Tech News focusing on driving patient outcomes with the use of digital and technology.

As an experienced GP in Greater Manchester with an interest in digital healthcare, Chris will share his views and insights, and discuss what ‘good’ looks like across the digital landscape within primary care.

The following day, on 28 February, he will join health leaders and innovators from far and wide at HETT North 2024 – a healthcare sector exhibition organised by Healthcare Excellence Through Technology (HETT), at Manchester Central Convention Complex.

In his role as GP Digital Lead at the PCB, Chris will speak during a session entitled ‘Interoperability from the frontline: How can we bridge the gaps across the health and care ecosystem?’.

Topics within the session include: assessing interoperability between different sectors; building legacy tech into the journey or stepping it down; how has better communication been achieved between settings; could the Transfer of Care be the answer; and how can patients be involved in their care journey.

The session, chaired by Omar Din of the HETT primary care working group, is part of a new HETT North stream for 2024: HETT digital primary care insights, aimed to support and inform those on the frontline.
