Clinician involvement in Connecting for Health

Following an appeal, by NHS Connecting for Health, a couple of months ago for clinicans from the NHS to help the software development to support the National Programme for IT (NPfIT), I understand that applications have been received and next week the first 23 will be flying off to Seattle or India.

Their role is to help programmers ensure that the software which make up the National Clinical Records Service meets the needs and ways of working of staff within the NHS.

What is slightly worrying is how a group, exclusively made of of general practitioners (GPs), will be able to represent the myriad of clinical professions in the NHS?
