Embrace the NHS App as part of your practice’s digital toolbox


Is your practice population really so small that 200 'early adopters' were making enough trouble that workload changed with an app? The workload change identified in relation to these apps is real, but no-one is making any attempt to put any real understanding into the changes. What academic is going to waste their reputation when the commissioners of their research have already decided that 'Patients love it..' based on a skewed sample? It is fun to play with toys. They only stop being toys and become tools once they are properly understood and applied in a rational manner. Call it science, or if that is out of fashion common sense.
