The healthcare sector is going through seismic change which is transforming how primary care is being delivered.

As NHS funding cuts continue to impact on primary care and patient waiting times, traditional healthcare providers and new market entrants have spotted an opportunity to offer privatised services to frustrated and disenchanted patients. Increasing numbers of patients are therefore turning to the private sector in order to have timely access to healthcare services such as online consultations and prescriptions, orthodontics and travel vaccinations.  

Many of these privatised services make use of digital technologies. The NHS is also looking to these new ways of working to help it deliver more for less and its Long Term Plan sets out the government’s ambition to integrate digital tools into primary care. However, as is the case with privatised services, effective regulation of digitally or remotely delivered healthcare services still has some way to go before they can be embraced more widely without the concern that standards are being compromised.
