Peter Stefanovic – Lending Support To Lambeth Patient Online
August 16, 2016
Peter Stefanovic, a political commentator and champion of the NHS, speaks up for the country’s hard-pressed GPs. Here he comments on Lambeth GP Federations’ initiative to promote Lambeth Patient Online, a campaign designed to encourage more patients to book appointments, order repeat prescriptions and view their medical records online.
Recognising that a more efficiently used online booking system also has the potential to free up GP’s time, allowing them to commit their efforts to supporting healthcare for the homeless, and providing more care to the elderly and sick at home, Peter says:
“Over the years I have come to know that our general practitioners are some of the most kindest, most caring members of our society. [Lambeth Patient Online] has the potential to free up the time of our GPs to offer outreach support to some of the most vulnerable in our community, including the elderly and the homeless.”
