You may have heard in the news over recent months of the increasing burden General Practice across the country is under. Greater complexity of patient needs, real term funding cuts and recruitment difficulties have meant that patients are having to wait longer to see their GP.
NHS Newcastle Gateshead Clinical Commissioning Group are exploring whether we can use technology to improve patient access to GP practices whilst at the same time reducing the demands on practices. Not all of these methods may be currently available, but it will help us to decide where we should concentrate our developments.
We would be grateful if you would spend a couple of minutes answering these questions. This survey is being conducted anonymously any data collected will only be used for the purpose of this research.
