Brian Gorman, Chief Technology Officer, BT, Capital Care Alliance

NHS Connecting for Health is delivering the National Programme for IT to bring modern computer systems into the NHS, which will improve patient care and services. Over the next eight years 30,000 GPs in England will be connected to almost 300 hospitals and give patients access to their personal health and care information, transforming the way the NHS works. The project will cost £6.2 bn. England has been divided into five different regions (other parts of the UK have their own systems) communicating via an interconnecting Spine network. As our speaker’s job title suggests, he will concentrate on the technological aspects, but will mention the peculiar challenges of a controversial project of this size, and how BT and the Capital Care Alliance, as Local Service Provider, are overcoming them in the London and Southeast region.
