Telehealth plans should be made public

9th November 2012

The Labour Party has joined calls for the Department of Health to publish evidence to support its claims that using telehealth could save the NHS £1.2bn.

Shadow health minister Andrew Gwynne has tabled a parliamentary question on the matter after the subject was brought to his attention at the EHI Live 2012 conference. The call follows comments by Jeremy Nettle, chairman of the Health and Social Care Council, Intellect UK, which represents healthcare suppliers, raising concerns about the lack of enthusiasm for telehealth among GPs.
