Not related to GP but my health board spent seven and a half million on a Internet-based Healthcare Information System, this one Trakcare. Installing PC's and necessary connections and peripherals and yet it is under used by some 70% according to a freedom of Information question I posed. And this system cannot talk other systems used by different professions within the hospital.
The reason I posted the FOI in the first place is I needed to get a copy of my records and on receipt I realised that there was d=so much I could not read or understand due to poor handwriting which I though that in the 21st century was inexcusable and then it occurred to me in all the time had spent in many different rooms in hospital whilst undergoing treatment or cancer I never ever saw a computer on let alone used.
My own GP has all records now computerised and mine go back to when I first came to Scotland in 1974. He was telling me of a couple who moved from France who bought the complete medical history on a USB drive. If you change doctors in this country it can take weeks for your medical history to be transferred,so in my surgery technology has improved my practice. I might add I can order my repeat prescriptions online and I also get a couple of text reminding me of appointments. Most useful.
