Patients have been telling us that they are ready and want the opportunity to take more control of their health and wellbeing.
Digital technology has the power to change the relationship between patients and their GP practice, just as it has changed our relationships in other walks of life, such as managing finances or shopping.
It can make services more convenient, personal and efficient.
It’s the NHS’s ambition to embrace technology as part of our drive to offer modern, convenient and response services to patients, your families and carers. GP practices are helping to lead the way.
