At http://nhs-it.info, colleagues and I have collected material on the NHS National Programme for IT, which shows all the classic symptoms of a large project failure in the making. If it goes belly-up, it could be the largest IT disaster ever, and could have grave consequences for healthcare in Britain. With 22 other computer science professors, I wrote to the Health Select Committee urging them to review the project. The Government is dragging its feet, and things seem to be going from bad to worse.
