Building a Digital First Future: Digital Primary Care Congress

Arden & GEM’s Chief Clinical Information Officer for Norfolk and Waveney, Dr Ed Turnham, will be presenting at the third ‘Building a Digital First Future: Digital Primary Care Congress’ on Wednesday 5 February.

Taking place in Manchester, the congress will provide 200 delegates with the opportunity to join the debate on the use of technology within primary care settings and hear about the most up to date policy and developments across the UK.

Dr Ed Turnham will be joining an expert panel of speakers to share how Norfolk and Waveney STP are delivering a radical digital-first transformation in the way patients access services from their GP, utilising online consultations. The online system guides patients through structured questions about their medical problems to allow practices to address these problems in the way that is most effective, efficient and convenient.

Ensuring that all patients in England have access to a digital-first offer, such as online or video consultations, by 2022-23 is a key part of the NHS Long Term Plan’s ambition for primary care.

In addition to his role as Chief Clinical Information Officer and Clinical Lead for GP Online Consultations in Norfolk and Waveney, Dr Turnham is a practicing GP in Norwich, with a passion for driving digital innovation and service improvement for patients.
