GP Workload Reduced by Telehealth?

A new study has found that there is no evidence that telehealth alters the number of patient contacts with GP’s or reduces GP’s workload.

 

 “The study, conducted by the Nuffield Trust, showed that patients using telehealth contacted GPs as often as those who did not, concluding it will not reduce GPs’ workloads, despite Government claims that telehealth scheme will reduce the burden on GPs.”
