MPs put the boot in ... again

Now the UK Parliament's Public Accounts Committee produces The National Programme for IT in the NHS: an update on the delivery of detailed care records systems.

This follows on from last week's report by the Public Administration Select Committee A Recipe for Rip-Offs - Time for a new approach which we reported on here.

The latest report (again only in html) recommends that the detailed care record database system is scrapped according to the BBC piece.

Ironic that on the one hand eveyone is condemning Tory-Lib proposals for NHS reform and on the other the NHS IT initiative, in its many aspects, is coming under such flack.
