Description: The purpose of the BT Local Service Provider South programme is to support IT enabled transformation in the NHS in the South to create a more efficient, joined-up and patient-led health service. The key objectives of the programme are to: - Provide patients with more choice and control over their patient records - Create a health service centred around the patient with health information following patients where they are receiving treatment - Provide health professionals and patients with better access to information and enhance the quality of clinical information so that decisions about patient care and treatment can be made quickly and efficiently based on secure and up-to-date healthcare records. - Help health professionals deliver better patient care by improving the way NHS staff connect with each other across organisational boundaries and provide them with faster, easier access to reliable electronic patient information - transform the way information flows around the health service and help to provide improved and innovative patient services in the South. All IT deployments and upgrades are now complete and the programme is working to i) maximise the benefits that customer NHS Trusts derive from these systems and ii) work with NHS Trusts and suppliers to ensure a safe and orderly exit from the BT Local Service Provider arrangements in advance of contract end on 31 October 2015.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: The MPA RAG rating was Amber/Red at Q2 2014. While the programme has a strong record in deploying/upgrading IT systems, there was concern about the early stage of planning for the migration of NHS Trusts to new locally sourced and managed services before the end of the BT Local Service Provider contract. Significant progress towards improved delivery confidence has been made in completing the remaining deploying activity and planning for contract exit: • The programme team has refocused on Exit and is working closely with all NHS Trusts and Suppliers to support transition plans for migrating away from BT Local Service Provider services and to identify and manage associated risks; • There is a better understanding of the requirements for contract exit with one NHS Acute Trust and three NHS Community and Mental Health Trusts having successfully exited the BT Local Service Provider service; • All NHS Community and Mental Health IT deployments and upgrades have been delivered; and • All NHS Acute Trust IT deployments have been delivered with the remaining handful of upgrades forecast to be delivered on time. Note: The BT Local Service Provider (London) Programme and the BT Local Service Provider (South) Programme operate through a single Programme Board have been assessed by the Cabinet Office's Major Projects Authority as a joint assessment.
