Self Care – Inform patients via your website

“Simply telling patients that they need to self care more is not enough: GPs need to provide them with appropriate tools. This why the practice team and I have spent the past five years developing our practice website, www.htmc.co.uk
I believe that making the internet a bigger part of practices’ patient care plans will create proactive and focused patients. For example, if I direct a patient to an online resource (like our practice website) during a consultation, they can look up the website at home. Then they can be directed to other online sources of information that encourage them to find out more about their condition – and to do something about it.”

Amir Hannan, GP Online, 14 April 2011
