BBC NEWS | Health | GPs 'doubtful' about IT upgrade

BBC NEWS Health GPs 'doubtful' about IT upgrade
This File on 4 programme will be broadcast on Radio 4 on Tuesday 19 October at 2000 BST and repeated at 1700 BST on Sunday 24 October.
It follows last weeks debates about the real costs of NPfIT & reports a survey of doctors showing only 7% of the 500 GPs and hospital doctors felt they had been adequately consulted.

I bet the rates would be even lower for other professional groups.
The file on four web page is at http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/file_on_4/default.stm and the audio file can be heard until Tues 26th Oct from http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/radio4_aod.shtml?fileon4
A PDF transcript is available at:

  • The amount of consultation is still minimal. I have just done two sessions, one to pre reg and one to post reg across several professional groups, and not only had they not been consulted, most had never even heard of NPfIT. Who is is going to provide the training so that the investment (however much it finally comes in at)is not wasted? HE, or NHSU....
