PCTs 'undermining quality framework'

Dr Jim Lee's practice this week became the first to link up with the spine of the new national care record system.

Dr Lee said the practice in Batley, West Yorkshire, wanted to get involved with the National Programme for IT because it needed to replace its Torex system.

But it was surprised to be chosen by local service provider Accenture as 'a pioneer' for the care record.

He said: 'When we agreed to take part we knew we would be part of the first wave in the area, but we didn't know we would be such pioneers. I suppose somebody has to be first.' Dr Lee said there had been a few 'glitches', but he was happy with the system.
