NHS Digital paid management consultants £1.2m for advice on GP IT overhaul

Comment

This isn't just a simple financial kick in the teeth, it's a complete dereliction of duty and a rubbishing of all the considerable, detailed, and longstanding IT expertise available on primary care. Bear in mind if you will that of all the areas of medicine, primary care is by far the best in its use of IT - in come cases by about 15 years. So where was the consultation with the leading representatives of primary care, and primary care informaticians? Was there any at all? With the BMA, with the User Groups, with the PHCSUG, with the Faculty of Clinical Informatics, with the CCIO and CIO networks?
