BBC Radio 4 at 8pm on 25 October 2007 is broadcasting a half-hour documentary on the NHS’s National Programme for IT [NPfIT]. It will examine the successes and failures of an undertaking which has received much media attention.

It tells the story of the national programme from its beginnings, says a BBC press release. The presenter Sue Nelson will ask why the project has been criticised in the British media.

“Along the way, Sue meets GPs and hospital doctors who believe the project will revolutionise patient care and others who argue that there are negative implications for patients and working practice.”
