Inquiry begins into NPfIT15th February 2007
The committee behind the inquiry into the NHS National Programme for IT has announced details of what it will look into.
The House of Commons Health Select Committee is now asking for written evidence to be considered as part of their inquiry into the controversial programme.
The committee will concentrate on the electronic record systems, including what will be held on it, and how access is being restricted to ensure patient confidentiality. This includes who can access it and for what reasons.
It will also consider patients’ rights to prevent personal information being stored.
Members will also review the development of the NHS care records service and the national data spine and why the systems are two years behind schedule.
The committee has invited interested parties to submit written evidence by March 16.
