Areas of Interest for All

This page will hold various papers and information of interest to our members, this can be anything from results from surveys we have sent out to reports from the Executive and letters sent to Clinical Systems or eHealth Leads. Please find below and I hope they are of interest.


Primary Care GP IT Glossary

As a result of the SNUG Annual Survey it was found that our members  – and indeed SNUG Executive – were unsure of the many acronyms used in GP IT.  A glossary was created with help from our members and the Executive and we hope this will be of benefit if ever in doubt. If you have anything you wish to add to the Glossary please let me know.

SCI Gateway Issues

As you know The Scottish National Users’ Group are here to campaign on your behalf for better GP IT for our members. One of the concerns we have voiced for you is SCI Gateway and the lack of communication surrounding this. Please find attached some notes made from Dr Neil Kelly at the recent SCI Gateway Meeting along with the Gateway Project Highlight Team Report and the Release Notes.

I hope by sharing this information with our Member Practices it gives better clarity on what we as a users’ group work towards achieving on your behalf. Please do share this with your colleagues in the Practice and let us know any thoughts or comments.

Historic SCI Gateway Correspondance

The SNUG Executive became increasingly concerned regarding the issues with SCI Gateway back in April 2016, which resulted in a letter to the Head of eHealth. You can read the letter and the update as a result. SNUG will continue to campaign on this on your behalf.
