Social Media Defamation

Use of social media has increased exponentially in the last decade; resulting in new challenges for both GPs and patients. The BMA, the RCGP and the GMC have all produced guidance on how doctors should conduct themselves on social media. 

Comments are also being made about GPs, their practices and staff members on social media; this guidance is intended to help practices deal with comments that are defamatory.
