NHS Social Media

The NHS funded a project to research into, and implement, the use of Social Media in Patient Participation Groups. The use of facebook groups provides a private platform where group participants can talk about any matters arising.

NHS Social Media

Project Brief

The NHS Commissioned the Informatics Centre to investigate how Social Media could help attract a younger audience to Patient Participation Groups. The solution was required after the Doctors Practices realised they didn't have an even demographic of ages.


Technology & Services

The facebook page was built using the page builder, whereas the blog was built using WordPress which is a PHP Openware CMS. The decision to use WordPress was taken as it is an easy-to-use system, which doesn't require any HTML editing, but is still 100% customizable.
