TELL ME AGAIN - HOW DO I BACK UP?

NHS data losses can be expected. They are not willing to pay a decent rate for a decent Tech-team.

The skilled guys are tech consultants but not for the NHS. And how do two guys keep up with a whole hospital's needs with computing, electronic records, bar-code-only to locate patients hard copy records on miles of shelves....... etc.

As an ex-admin in the NHS, my wife has first hand experience of the constant fails and crashes, and panics if an operation was about to be cancelled because notes could not be located.

This crisis is nothing new - just different!
