Health service to be fit for digital age

11th June 2009

New health secretary Andy Burnham has said he wants to see a health service fit for the digital age.

Speaking at the NHS Confederation conference in Liverpool he said that despite the NHS set to face financial constraints, he believed the health service still had scope to focus on reshaping its services with an emphasis on quality and prevention. He said that quality did not have to cost more, citing the savings that could be made from reducing errors and healthcare associated infections.
