The DoH target is for 90 per cent of GP referrals to be made using Choose and Book by 31 March 2007.
In the poll, conducted by Ipsos MORI, GPs were asked: 'How much use, if any, do you think you will personally make of each of the following services in your daily working life in the future? Would you say a great deal, a fair amount, not very much or not at all?'
Of the 108 GPs surveyed, 43 per cent expected to use Choose and Book a great deal, 31 per cent a fair amount, 12 per cent not very much, and 4 per cent were unsure.
GPs generally backed (73 per cent) the overall aims of the National Programme for IT.
Meanwhile, GP leaders have joined a DoH task force that will agree an implementation plan for the electronic national summary care record with CfH.
Members will include BMA chairman Mr James Johnson, GPC chairman Dr Hamish Meldrum and RCGP chairman Dr Mayur Lakhani.
The task force is due to report to ministers at the end of November and initial elements of the care record are expected to be rolled out in 2007.
