A multibillion-pound project to install a patient record system across the NHS has been dealt another blow after a key health trust decided to abandon the system.

Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust has decided it no longer wants Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) to implement the Lorenzo electronic patient record system. The mental health trust was one of four NHS trusts chosen to be early adopters of Lorenzo. The system was to go live at these early-adopter sites before CSC rolled it out to trusts across the Midlands and the north and east of England.

The project to implement Lorenzo at Pennine is more than a year behind schedule, with the system first due to go live at the trust in November 2009.
