UK NHS computer system going down the tubes

I just love to collect these articles! Seems there's always a big system in the toilet! I wish they'd say which company was doing it, since there is only one that is big enough to botch things on this scale. And yet they always get the work! But maybe they have a percentage of success that is greater than one, so they can continue to schmooze the politicians....

And here I thought this was about public transport and seismology or engineering.

It's not just one company but four (well three now Fujitsu have walked away from a billion pound contract - that is how bad it is).

The Register is a good source for more details:

That was a great link! I collect these things, because they remind me of huge political engineering projects, such as nuclear plants, and big tunnels at Niagara Falls.
