That seems to go against the official advice I have read so far which asks people not to contact their own surgery as people will be contacted. Whilst our surgery announces news on Facebook, it contacts by other means.
Maybe different areas are operating in different ways.

My new surgery seems to use Facebook.  It has its pros & cons. Not everyone is on Facebook.

It results in people disclosing health information to the world while pleading their case to get a booking for the next flu vaccination clinic.  Bookings are even made via Facebook.

There has to be a better way to advertise their services.

How very strange. I thought that most GP practices had informative websites and had the facility for patients to register online to access their records, make bookings and order prescriptions - such as Systmonline or similar NHS aps.



Mine does.

Ours too, Gadget.
I canít imagine that people would /or have to use an open forum for medical needs.

It appears to this surgeries choice to communicate itís hours and clinics.  But at least you still have to phone to make an appointment.

The problem is that you just donít know how each surgery is going to choose how to communicate.

Just this minute announced on the news, you will be contacted by your surgery.

I would have thought that it breaches confidentiality.

People seems to say things quite freely - it's not a good idea.  I don't think people realise quite how open Facebook is.

My surgery has Systemonline which is good but for news & updates the website is dire. Not many surgeries can update their own websites & seem to drag their feet about using [perhaps having to pay] the services of their website designer to communicate 'News' although they have a section supposedly devoted to it.
