"I visited the hospital in Worcester with the Chairman of Patientline. I was amazed by the complexity and potential of the equipment installed at every bedside. This gives not only television and telephone access but access to the internet and enormous capability for hospital staff to display the electronic patient record, to order meals, to order drugs and to order investigations. This is the specification that the Government ordered. The only problem is that the NHS system for information technology is so many years behind schedule that none of this extra potential at the bedside can be used."
