"Twitter and social media is changing healthcare. It's a very significant tool that we have to use now." Prof Juliet Beal, Director of Nursing, Quality Improvement and Care NHS England "Every facet of the NHS is represented on social media. Senior Department of Health officials, nurses, junior doctors, radiologists, patient groups, NHS librarians, mental health practitioners, HR and finance professionals and more are all on Twitter discussing their professions. There is also evidence that online comments from patients can predict the quality of a service.11 A variety of NHS stakeholders regularly use Twitter to discuss topical issues, comment on services, lobby the system and share the latest news, information and research."
