Headline

£4.2bn of NHS budget to be ringfenced for IT

Comment

reported in 2013 - An abandoned NHS patient record system has so far cost the taxpayer nearly £10bn, with the final bill for what would have been the world's largest civilian computer system likely to be several hundreds of millions of pounds higher, according a highly critical report from parliament's public spending watchdog. I doubt this NHS IT project fair any better.
