Political row over NPfIT29th October 2008
The National Programme for IT (NPfIT) has been condemned by opposition MPs following press reports that the £12bn programme is "grinding to a halt."
Conservative shadow health spokesman Stephen O’Brien said the reports confirmed the programme is "desperately behind schedule" with suppliers "deserting in droves" and many health professionals insisting on local solutions, while Liberal Democrat health spokesman Norman Lamb said the project had been "a shambles from the start". The comments follow claims that the deployment of care records systems had stalled.
