Greenfield penalties for south2nd October 2009
The NHS could be liable for multi-million pound penalties to BT if it fails to deliver four ‘greenfield’ sites in the South of England ready and willing to take Cerner Millennium.
The Department of Health is due to pay £73m to BT for installing Cerner Millennium at four Southern sites but should the trusts baulk at taking the software, the health service will be liable for penalty payments of up to, £44m - 60% of the total with the money coming out of the total allocation for NHS IT in the South.
