Outrageous / depressing news on wasted expenditure on NHS IT projects – hopefully lessons will be learnt eventually

Taxpayers are still footing the bill for the deeply flawed National Programme for IT (NPfIT) that was launched by the Labour government in 2002 to try and standardise all IT and data access across the NHS…..
The report noted that the NHS will still pay £2.2bn to IT provider Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) for the programme, despite the company’s own failures that have seen it repay money to the NHS.
