NAO denies changing NHS report

Audit office says report was accurate and fair

Claims that the National Audit Office omitted serious criticisms of the £12bn
upgrade of the controversial NHS IT system have been categorically rejected by
the watchdog.

This rejection came in response to an article in Computer Weekly
magazine which claimed that three draft NAO reports were changed during a
clearance process between the NAO and the Department of Health which lasted
nearly six months.

The NAO though insisted that all its reports undergo a clearance process to
establish the facts and a spokesperson told The Guardian: ‘The facts of
the report are agreed upon because we want to produce the most accurate and fair
report possible.

‘The core conclusions of this report did not change,’
