Patients prefer their own GP for telehealth

5th August 2020

When it comes to telehealth, patients like to consult with their regular GP, a new survey has found.

Nearly all (95%) patients who booked a telehealth consult between April and June had been to the practice before. 

And one quarter booked a follow-up appointment at the same practice, according to the research by HealthEngine.

The results are based on data from nearly 220,000 telehealth appointments at 730 practices and 496 patient surveys.
