Back in May, apparently in an effort to look like ‘real people’ on social media, Conservative MPs received some much-needed, if slightly elementary, top tips to up their game on Instagram. But while some have way to go in keeping up with the ‘digital natives’, others are more readily embracing technology. New Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock is one such example – albeit with varying degrees of success.
Despite the Matt Hancock App facing some data privacy issues which would probably not be recommended by his own Government watchdog, Hancock appears keen not to waste his experience at the Department for Digital, Culture Media & Sport, recently saying that he plans to make the NHS “more tech savvy and digital”. With the announced £20bn funding boost there may be more scope for this than previously.
