More than £4bn spent on NPfIT by April 2008

By the end of next month (March 2008) just over £4bn of centrally-directed funds will have been spent on the NHS’s National Programme for IT. The figure includes money spent by NHS Connecting for Health which runs part of the NPfIT but excludes spending allocated locally.

About £600m was spent in 2004/5, about £1bn in 2005/6, £1.1bn in 2006/7 and a projected £1.32bn by April 2008.


The Department of Health expects to spend a further £4.98bn on the NPfIT by April 2011, though this is subject to government spending reviews. On top of this is the local IT spend of an estimated £3bn to £4bn on the NPfIT.
