Health IT chief faces doghouse - Sunday Times

Health IT chief faces doghouse - Sunday Times - Times Online

Yesterday's Sunday Times carried this piece on Richard Grainger, chief executive of NHS Connecting for Health, and his reputation as the hard man of public-sector procurement. Contractual issues, as well as his style, are considered in relation to the procurement and implementation of software for the National Programme for IT.

The financial problems of the suppliers are important but, as the article points out, the "hearts and minds"of those working in the NHS may be even more important. There is some speculation about what will be in the national Audit Office report - which has been eagerly awaited for some time & should, hopefully, be finally published by June.
