MPs condemn £12bn NHS National Programme for IT

Via the Guardian:

"A £12.4bn programme to modernise IT systems throughout the NHS in England is running years behind schedule and failing to prove it is value for money, a committee of MPs said today.

The Commons public accounts committee delivered the most damning assessment to date of the health service's national programme for IT and Edward Leigh, its Conservative chairman, called last night for urgent remedial action to protect the interests of taxpayers."

The Public Accounts Committee's 20th Report outlining the criticism is available online.
