A £13 billion computer system intended to overhaul the NHS records system has been so dogged with problems that it is damaging patient care.

"Appointments for suspected cancer sufferers, accident and emergency treatment and scheduled operations have all been delayed by problems, and complaints have soared.

The glitches came with the introduction of the Connecting for Health computer network to the first NHS trusts to use it, which were in London.

The problems will concern those who have expressed doubts over the feasibility of the overarching system, which has yet to be brought into use nationwide.

Enfield Primary Care Trust was one of the organisations using the Connecting for Health system and problems with it led to 63 patients with Barnet and Chase Farm Hospitals NHS Trust having delayed operations.

Last May, the same trust cancelled 272 operations for 'non-clinical reasons' and 20 patients did not receive their scheduled post-operative check-up because their care was not sufficiently well tracked."
