Boffins: NHS Staff ‘Too Incompetent’ to Digitise

NHS WASTE

NHS staff are too dim to implement effective reform to their IT systems, according to the boffins drafted in to overhaul IT at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Addressing an event at the Academy of Medical Sciences this week, Fran Cousins and Dr Afzal Chaudhry singled out a lack of competence on the part of senior NHS staff for burdening their hospitals with costly and sub-standard legacy systems.

“I would say the first barrier is a lack of knowledge and understanding… There just aren’t enough people with the capability, competence and knowledge to implement and digitise 250 hospitals across the country”

Envy of the world…
