Government funds digital upgrade for UK GPs

Backed by a £240m government investment, all general practices across England will soon receive digital phonelines designed to make booking appointments easier.

More than one thousand practices have currently signed up to make the switch from analogue systems.

It is expected every practice in the country will have the new system in place by the end of this financial year.

Health and Social Care Secretary Steve Barclay said: “Practices on older systems will receive an average investment of £60,000 each to move onto digital phones combined with updated digital tools and support for the transition.”
