NPfIT independent review refused

13th August 2007

The government has ruled out holding an independent review of the National Programme for IT (NPfIT).

In its response to the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) report on NHS IT, and in line with one of the recommendations of the report, the government has promised to publish a full statement of the costs and benefits of NPfIT but ignored calls for an independent review.

The PAC report, which was published in April, was critical of the success of NPfIT and questioned the business case and contracts awarded for the £12.4bn NHS National Programme for IT.
