BMA should be giving GPs a lead on out-of-hours

We switched from Seetec to EMIS almost two-and-a-half years ago. Data transfer did not go well and I am still straightening out records.

In light of this I would not relish having to go through the whole process again because EMIS cannot reach agreement to get its software approved. But I understand the solution to the problem lies not with the PCTs nor the Government, but with EMIS.

I have been told EMIS will not agree to releasing information so its data can be read and understood by other systems. If I have been misled in my understanding of the problem I am sure somebody will put me right.

Surely the whole point of NPfIT is that computers can talk to each other, and if other suppliers have no problem with complying I fail to understand why EMIS does.
