Covering up with IT


The agency in charge of England’s NHS National Programme for IT is to devote more resources to engaging with nurses and midwives

Connecting for Health (CfH) is planning to double the number of national clinical leads in the sector from two to four, and to increase funding for engagement by 25% in 2007-08.

‘Engagement’, eh? It might be more to the point to concentrate on finding some more Health Visitors and Midwives first.

It’s rather like dealing with a severe shortage of social workers by spending millions on huge databases.
