NPfIT popularity declines4th August 2006
Despite supporting the aims of the National Programme for IT (NPfIT), healthworkers and managers are in agreement over its falling popularity, according to a new poll.
Connecting for Health say just one in four GPs feel favourably towards the National Programme for IT, despite recognising it as an important priority, according to its latest survey.
The same research found the programme is also less popular with both IM&T and general managers in the NHS than it was last year, though they share an overwhelming support for the programme’s future aims.
GPs and primary care staff felt more confident about implementing the programme than their secondary care colleagues, while different areas of the programme received different levels of support.
Most worryingly, the survey found one in four doctors and one in three nurses have never heard of it.
