Don't UK solicitors still use Fax machines still ?

What do the NHS use them for ? I am certain they have e-mail, telephones etc.

Up until not that long ago, email was not a legally-allowed method of delivering information (for use in a court of law anyway - it's too easy to forge).

Fax on the other hand was legally-allowed in a court of law. Which is why solicitors still have them since they deal (a lot) with other solicitors and they are, by nature, a slow-moving bunch..

I understand that email is now a legal method (despite still being ridiculously easy to forge).
