£1.1m scheme for IT mentors
Mentors who will give advice and tuition on information technology will be available to every practice in Scotland
under a £1.1 million scheme.
The Scottish Executive has approved an extension of an 'IT mentoring' pilot in Lan-arkshire after finding it improved the confidence of GPs and staff. Scottish deputy health minister Tom McCabe said patients benefited because of improved recording of information and sharing with other services.
