EDM - NHS CONNECTING FOR HEALTH COMPUTER SYSTEM

EDMDetails:

29 MPs have signed a house of commons "Early Day Motion" asking for scrutiny of NPfIT/NHS Connecting for Health which says:

"That this House notes with concern the contents of a letter to the Commons Health Select Committee signed by 23 senior academics in computer-related science which criticises the NHS Connecting for Health computer system, and reports in The Sunday Times of 16th April that the system, which was projected to cost £2.3 billion, could cost between £15 billion and £30 billion; further notes that NHS trusts are facing an estimated deficit of £600 million to £1 billion; and calls upon the Secretary of State to set up an independent review of the project and to ensure that any savings identified are directed to cash-strapped NHS trusts."
