Stephen Timms, Treasury Secretary, speaking in a C4 Dispatches documentary this week on government waste:
“Parts of the NHS IT system are already up and running and doing a very valuable job. I think that once the system is in place, up and running, it is going to be a very important part of ensuring we do have a modern and effective NHS that all of us want to see.”
What Timms wouldn’t say in public or private: In politics what begins as a grand idea for using IT to put the world to rights usually ends in folly.
