White paper by Cumbria Rural Health Forum, UK on general practitioners’ attitudes and experiences of digital healthcare. In order to better understand how digital technologies can enhance primary care from a general practitioner’s perspective, 15 GPs were surveyed by face to face interview, email and phone. They were asked to reflect on their experiences of using technology, to consider which services technology would be most helpful in supporting and to highlight any issues and concerns. Most GP consultations are face-to-face (surgery appointments, home visits), with a substantial proportion now using phone calls to supplement this. Some practices are starting to use social media for health education and general health questions. GPs were asked how they think technology could improve their practice.
