NHS National Programme For IT Set For Major Scale Back

According to figures fro m Simon Burns, a minister for Health, in 2008 to 2009 the National Health Service (NHS) spent a whopping £1.6 Billion on Information Technology. Of the £1.6 Billion, £27 million was spent on Strategic Health Authorities and £682 million on Primary Care Trusts. However as both Strategic Health Authorities and Primary Care Trusts are set to be scrapped in the next few years the Government could save £700+ million in NHS IT savings alone.

The National Programme for Information Technology (NPfIT) managed to cost the taxpayer £1.06 Billion in the period. CSC, Fujitsu and Atos appear to have been the biggest beneficiaries from National Health Service IT spending, with CSC taking £232 million for its work during the period.
