Web 2.0 and GPs

A story in The Guardian on Tuesday suggests - "Ministers are planning to force GPs to improve their performance by posting patients' comments about them on an NHS website".

More details:

Ben Bradshaw, the health minister, wants to make it easy for patients in England to rate their family doctor's competence and bedside manner on bulletin boards on the NHS Choices website.

Officials have been told to have the appropriate software ready next year.

He hopes consumer power will make GPs offer a better service for fear that patients may switch to another practice with better website reviews.
