This paper presents the results of a small survey of clinicians in Northern Ireland. The survey sought to examine attitudes towards the use of healthcare technologies in everyday medical practice. Replies were received from 37% of those surveyed. The majority of replies came from consultants, fully trained and accredited in their speciality, representing senior opinions in their field. The survey revealed that while the level of interest in specific domains of health technology use in the older person was consistently high, those surveyed exhibited poor knowledge and indeed actual use of health technology.
