NHS to review use of IT
The NHS is expected to change the way it buys IT equipment.
Since Richard Granger was named director general of NHS IT, with the responsibility to revamp the service’s use of technology, healthcare resellers have been braced for change. One expected change is the appointment of a small number of large IT suppliers to control the supply of IT equipment to different parts of the NHS.
Details of the plan are expected this month. In December, Granger said: ‘It is obvious a major concern is the need to streamline the whole process, and this will happen.’
