A new initiative in the UK will see that every citizen gets a personal webpage to access government services.

The project is looking to make public services more efficient while cutting costs associated with running real world offices.

The Telegraph reports:

the secure site would include a Facebook-style interactive service allowing people to ask medical advice of their doctor or consult their children’s teachers.

The move could see the closure of job centres and physical offices dealing with tax, vehicle licensing, passports and housing benefit within 10 years as services were offered through a single digital ”gateway”, Downing Street sources told the newspaper.
