Social Media

Social media can be a great resource, but it is not without its risks. There is plenty of advice available now about the pros and cons of doctors using social media. There are many forms of social media, including blogs, micro-blogs, wikis, social networking sites, photo-sharing sites, instant messaging, video-sharing sites, podcasts, widgets, virtual worlds, and more.

The use of social media can be a great way for GP practices to communicate with more people, including those who don’t visit the surgery often and those who are isolated – but we know that many are still cautious about this.

It’s often confusing for GP practices and their staff to know how to handle their own social media presence as well as how to react to negative feedback so we’ve found some guidance documents on the subject relevant to general practice.
