10% of NHS staff signed up for ECDL

One in ten NHS workers now training to use computers - Press Release - NHSIA

According to this press release from the NHS Information Authority (NHSIA) 100,000 NHS staff are now working towards the European Computer Driving Licence.

This is extremely encouraging, however the completion rates are still much lower. My suspicion is that those who already have reasonable computer skills will be the first to sign up for ECDL & get recognition for what they can do. Those with less IT skills are more likely to delay signing up & are those are the people who are likely to have more problems as increasing use of IT systems in clinical practice become the norm.
