NHS IT fund gets further £240m boost

Hospitals, GP surgeries and out-of-hours medical services are set to benefit from £240m funding to boost IT, health secretary Jeremy Hunt has announced.

The extra funding adds to the original £260m Safer Hospitals, Safer Wards fund, which was launched by Professor Sir Bruce Keogh in May. It will help ensure all patients can book GP appointments online and see their records online by 2015.
