EMIS National User Group Conference

PETER SHORT

Peter short

Peter is in his last year as a clinical lead at NHS Digital, having been a principal in General practice in Buxton, and an EMIS user for most of his working life. He is unusual in clinical informatics and has come from a background of medical politics, and a healthy scepticism of technology and exaggerated claims of benefit to the patient, the service and working clinicians. He authored the NHS Digital internal policy paper on clinical and clinician benefit from IT delivery. He has personally utilised NHS services heavily over the last ten years, featuring in PACS promotional literature with `interesting’ radiology. He is seeking enthusiastic colleagues to consider working with NHS Digital to drive the future agenda that meets the expectation of the new generation of General Practice.
