Local organisations to make decisions about IT15th September 2010

He said trusts will instead be able to operate “a more locally-led plural system of procurement” and that a Department of Health review of the national programme had concluded that a new, “modular” approach to implementation should also be adopted. While acknowledging the importance of improving IT, he said the nationally imposed system is neither necessary nor appropriate to deliver that.
