Call for NPfIT to be scrapped

4th June 2009

The chair of the BMA’s consultants committee Dr Jonathan Fielden has called for the NHS Programme for IT to be ended.

Speaking at the BMA’s Consultants Conference, he described the programme as “the worst case of planning blight across the NHS” and that it was time for the health service to wean itself off failed, expensive government policies, commercial contracts and management consultants. Dr Fielden said the value of electronic patient records had been established but that NPfIT was taking too long to deliver them.
