Call for abolition of national care record22nd January 2009
The Liberal Democrats have called for the abolition of the national care record.
Speaking at BMA House in London, the party's shadow health secretary Norman Lamb said that no clinical business case had been made for the electronic health record and that nationwide access to records was far less important than local connectivity. The debate, in which Mr Lamb described the National Programme for IT as a massive failure, also looked at decentralising the health service, better integration of health and social care, and ways to cut the number of NHS managers.
