Delivery failure = "savings"?
Some of these figures just don't add up!
N3 making savings: why? This is infrastructure, and although the specifications, especially for GP branch surgeries, were underspecified, should anyone be congratulated on failure to deliver basic infrastructure which is fundamental to delivery of other aspects of the program?
PACS not included originally.
Lorenzo, originally a SSEPR (Single Shared Electronic Patient Record) has now been re-defined so many times that delivery of the original IiSoft PAS systems probably counts as delivery! As a GP, I certainly hope so: I am not looking forward to the destruction of GP EPRs demanded by the introduction of the Detailed Local Care Record - of which Lorenzo is, as I understand it, an example.
The costs to Trusts of planning blight - and inability to specify what is needed - are not mentioned.
