Dr Charles Morrison spent almost a year trying to ensure data would not be lost when he upgraded his IT system. Whenever the supplier did a dummy run of the switch, information from consultations was lost.

'It can take a long time to get used to the systems so GPs might not be able to spot things for a while,' said Dr Morrison, a GP in north London.
