Review of the work of the HPCG and recommendations from the group for future clinical engagement activities
Extensive discussion about the dissolution of the SIGs. VCGs seen as a risk to credibility of the meetings akin to a chat room.
The new proposed CCG could be seen as undemocratic with no representation from the volunteer effort; pursuing a managerial agenda rather than member agenda.
Practical issues include potential for lack of professional recognition by e.g. professional colleges and other prof. clinical orgs.
Need formality to justify time away from professional commitments.
The HPCG feel that they need more recognition for the contribution to the organisation in order to obtain funding to participate and attend meetings.
The other concern is that there has to be focus on other than content projects.
SLI: responded to say that this model was based on Canada Health Infoway model;
IGR: The issue is not to change the current direction but rather to ensure that details are included in the process.
IGR will address these concerns in particular formal structures.
Action Item - request all members in attendance here to please provide an email to Ian Green with a couple of bullet points about the value of the SIGs and the contribution of this group. This is to reflect the value of the two way stream i.e. value both as participants on the receiving end of the process and and as contributors to the organisation.
