Link to government response to Public Accounts Committee report on NHS National Programme for IT

Some people are finding it hard to find this report …

Link to the governmnent’s response to the report of the Public Accounts Committee on the NHS’s National Programme for IT [NPfIT].

The government accepts some of the all-party committee’s recommendations – in principle – but none of those that call for independent assessments of facets of the programme.

The Department of Health’s rush to push chairs and sofas against its locked doors whenever there is a call for external scrutiny of the NPfIT will give even the programme’s enthusiasts the impression that all is not well.

It’s true that the National Audit Office is investigating, but we have seen that it can be persuaded to remove criticisms from its draft reports before the final version is published.
