HC2005 - NPfIT is listening

It was announced today, by the BCS Health Informatics Forum, that the NHS National Programme for IT (NPfIT) "Clinical Leeds" will be meeting delegates at the HC2005 conference.

It is to be hoped that this increased openness by the National Programme, will reflect a desire to actively engage with the staff who are going to needs to use the products and services they introduce.

"The BCS HIF which organises the HC2005 Conference on March 21st to 23rd at Harrogate is delighted that the National Programme has suggested we have two sessions at which the new Clinical Leads will be available to meet delegates. This "meet the Clinical Leads" session will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday alongside the rest of the conference programme. www.bcshic.org It is an excellent sign of the desire by NPfIT to communicate with health service workers and to listen to their views. BCS HIF supports this openness and is very pleased to be able to help in this process. The clinical leads will also be a part of the Closing session in which Alan Burns will be talking."

I wonder if a minister will be added to the speakers list, if an election is announced during the conference?
