Jeremy Hunt: Technology to enable 'more efficient' NHS

Technology can be used to create a "more efficient" NHS, health secretary Jeremy Hunt has said.

Mr Hunt told the Today programme that by using new methods - including phone, email and Skype - to talk to some patients, GPs will be free to spend longer periods of time with those who have more "complex" conditions.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Monday 14 April.
