Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust: ICT

Volume 485: debated on Tuesday 16 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health whether the Newcastle-upon-Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is on schedule to go live with its electronic patient management and care record system. (243190)

We understand that Newcastle upon Tyne hospitals NHS foundation trust has no reason to believe that it will not go live with its new patient management and care record system next year as planned. The trust is working closely with its commercial partner, and in collaboration with NHS Connecting for Health, to ensure that all project timescales are met.
