Primary Care and Public Health Special Interest Group

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 eleanor.moss@ucl.ac.uk and kathrinthomas@hotmail.com or kathrin.thomas@nhs.net.
