Re: Does paperless mean more time?

"1) consultant dictates letter into tape recorder

2) Outsourced company employing foreign English(barely)-speaking workers on minimum wage types up the letter and prints it out for the consultant to check

3) After a short time(*), the outsourced prints out three copies of the letter. (*)The consultant is far too busy to actually check the letter, either because they are an overworked and underappreciated NHS staffer or because they are an overpaid, sponging Private Consultant who overcharges the NHS and spends most of his "working" day on the golf course or dining with his colleagues (the other Private Consultants, not the NHS ones who do 90% of the work for a fraction of the pay)."

There, fixed that for you.
