SNUG Executive Info

The SNUG Executive consists of a group of 14 Regional Co Ordinators based in each region in Scotland. The Co Ordinators are GP’s and Practice Managers using their GP IT systems on a daily basis, and share a desire for better patient care through improved use of information technology . The Regional Co Ordinators are there to speak on behalf of the area and feedback any concerns or requests from other Practices.

The SNUG Executive is an independent group but has representation from NVUG, EMIS NUG, Scottish Government, Facilitators, NSS IT and much more. You can see the members of SNUG Executive below:
