Steer patients to Facebook

British Association that provides legal assistance and support of doctors said that doctors should not respond to messages of love that patients receive through social networking sites such as Facebook. Mediacl Defense Union (MDU), which describes itself as the leading UK organization for the protection of health workers stated that the observed number of cases in which patients are sent various messages via Facebook or similar sites. MDU states that advises its members to respond to patients who were contacted in this way can be interpreted as a transgression of professional conduct in relation to doctor-patient.
