Blair on the paperless NHS

Tony Bliar took the opportunity at PMQs this week to declare his belief in a paperless NHS

""In the end, one of the huge benefits of having a National Health Service is that we can have electronic patient records that are transferable right around the system," he said. "If that happens, it means not just an end to vast amounts of paperwork in the NHS, but that things such as patient choice, for example, can become a reality."

Wasn't it about 40 or 50 years ago we started hearing about the paperless office?
