A project to provide electronic records to NHS patients in England could be scaled back by more than £750m, it emerged on Wednesday.
The Lorenzo electronic patient records system is being deployed in health trusts in the Midlands and the north and east of England under a £2.9bn contract between supplier CSC and the Department of Health (DoH).
On Wednesday CSC revealed the value of the contract could be reduced by £764m, to about £2.1bn, under an amendment being discussed with the DoH. The figure was disclosed in a filing to the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
