New group for national IT

9th November 2012

The national director for patients and information, Tim Kelsey, is to be the chair of a new informatics services commissioning group.

NHS Information Centre chief executive Tim Straughan told EHILive 2012 that the group will sit under the slimmed down Department of Health, the new NHS Commissioning Board, and other bodies with an interest in information and technology and will decide what infrastructure, standards and data sets need to be commissioned. It looks set to have an important co-ordinating role within IT in the NHS.
