Primary Care and Public Health SIG

The Primary Care and Public Health Special Interest Group was established in 2018 to provide a forum for public health clinicians, general practitioners, academics and anyone with an interest in primary care and public health collaboration to come together.

In particular to:

  • Promote the greater collaboration of Primary Care and Public Health for the benefit of the populations we serve.
  • Explore barriers and opportunities to improving place-based population health.
  • Explore how health inequities can be addressed through community oriented primary care.
  • Explore the translation of academic public health and primary care research into local public health policies.
  • Advocate for GPs to access education and training in public health at all levels.
  • Support each other and learn from each other.
  • Collaborate on specific issues of policy, training, and education.

The Primary Care and Public Health Special Interest Group is chaired by Eleanor Turner-Moss and Kathrin Thomas. We run an active JISCMail group and hold regular online meetings and webinars. Please contact us at and or

The SIG reports to the Health Services Committee.
