Simon de Lusignan
Professor of Primary Care and Clinical Informatics
I am a senior academic GP with research interests in clinical informatics and health outcomes.
My research interests focus on the use of routine data for surveillance, quality improvement, research and education as well as how technology has enabled new roles in health care and greater self-management.
I am Director of the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) Research and Surveillance Centre (RSC). This is one of Europe's oldest sentinel systems. RCGP RSC has produced a weekly report of influenza, respiratory and other infections in primary care for over 50 years. RCGP RSC works closely with Public Health England (PHE) to report vaccine effectiveness. More information at: www.rcgp.org.uk/rsc
