All GP surgeries to have wifi by Christmas

The roll-out of NHS wifi to primary care has now moved into its second phase which will see free wifi available to both patients and staff in all GP surgeries by 31 December 2017.

CCGs have received a letter outlining funding allocation, payment details, timeframes and service standards to be achieved. Free wifi for patients will allow them access to health and social care resources, online tools and services, empowering self-care and helping them to make informed decisions about their health care. Further information about the GPIT programme can be found on the NHS England website.
