Telehealth in the UK: A critical perspective

Abstract

This paper reports on the multi-layered research into telehealth in the UK conducted through a critical theory perspective. Telehealth is an umbrella term for health services delivered at a distance and, more specifically, over various telecommunication networks. The paper aims to offer an alternative perspective on telehealth, focusing on rationalities, knowledge claims and ways of legitimising telehealth. The paper concludes that there are competing and difficult to reconcile rationalities influencing telehealth, conflicting knowledge claims and no commonly agreed ways of legitimising telehealth.
