The UK’s Department of Health (DoH) has appointed a senior doctor as the first national clinical director for informatics to oversee the revamp of its IT system.

London Trust and Barts medical director Charles Gutteridge will be working with clinical staff, patients and informatics providers.

Gutteridge said the NHS’s £12.7bn project to overhaul its IT system was now being thought of more positively by hospital staff.

“This is an exciting time to be at the cutting edge of delivering informatics to improve patient care. As recent events have shown, there is a sea change in clinical attitudes to informatics and the National Programme for IT,” Gutteridge said.
