The Guardian has an apocalyptic warning:
By far the most important priority now is to keep the show on the road. It will not be easy for iSoft's new management to focus on sorting out its daunting problems. The City is baying for better results, the Financial Services Authority is investigating its accounts, the government is trying to prevent further cost overruns - a move that might propel other big contractors into trouble - and doctors have yet to make up their minds whether they want patients to have an opt-out rather than an opt-in for providing personal records. In retrospect, the project was far too ambitious to have been implemented within such a short political timetable. But that is cold comfort now. The urgent priority is to take whatever unpalatable action is necessary to prevent the modernisation of the NHS from being suffocated by its own complexity.
