NHS Trusts Increasingly Using Social Networking & Video Conferencing

Social Media

Recently the Gateshead Health NHS Foundation Trust began using Justgiving.com and so far 150,000 registered users have joined.  A recent heart transplant patient said that “This web site is like a secure and simple Facebook for hospital patients and their families. It enables people to keep in touch with the patient or simply look on their page to get an update on their progress – this is so important when you are away from your loved ones.”


Last month Hammersmith Hospital broadcast a heart procedure using a medical conferencing system to medical students around the country. Not only did the system help to save on travel costs but the hospital is also able to sell the footage to other training hospitals for a fee.
