The NHS Long term plan forecasts that primary care and outpatient services will be transformed over the next ten years to a model of tiered escalation depending on need, in which digital tools will support senior clinicians. The plans also state that by 2022-23 all patients in England will have access to a “digital-first primary care offer”, such as online or video consultations.
Digital-first primary care is already enhancing people’s experience through the online ability to manage appointments, order repeat prescriptions and view their medical records.
Over the coming months and years, we can expect developments in areas including:
• Online symptoms checking
• Online Clinical Advice
• Online consultations
• Primary Care NHS App support
• Digital access their medical records
• GP IT services
• Wi-Fi services in GP practices
On the 5th of February 2020 at the Chamber of Commerce, Manchester Convenzis will provide 200 delegates with the opportunity to join the debate on the use of technology within primary care settings.
There will be an expert panel of speakers to provide attendees with first-hand insight into the most up to date policy and developments from across the UK. More information about the event can be found here.
