GPTF have worked with Derby and Derbyshire LMC to come up with some simple guidance on how to get started with social media.

Created by our Head of Communications, Dr Susie Bayley, this guide helps practices starting out with social media. It discusses two of the most commonly used social media platforms, and how they could be used by surgeries to engage and inform patients.

Dr Bayley says

“Social Media is underused by GP surgeries, but is a great resource for keeping patients informed. With guidance it can be used to improve services, engage and empower patients. I hope this guide can encourage more practices to embrace a simple, quick and underused resource.”
