Online Technology Access Survey

There is an increasing burden that General Practice across the country is under. Great complexity of patient needs, real term funding cuts and rectruitment difficulties have meant that patients are having to wait longer to see their GP.

Online technology offers new opportunities to increase the efficiency of general practice and improve access to patients. This survey (which was also a pilot for a wider Newcastle Gateshead CCG survey) helps us to understand patient preferences in relation to these newer methods.
