Description:
Provision of a comprehensive and appropriate health and personal social service to the people in the North West is a complex and challenging undertaking. To make the optimum impact with what resources we have available to us, to position ourselves properly for the future, bearing in mind in particular the rapidly changing environment of technology, science, economic development, social structures, expectations and opportunities, is the context within which we have to operate. Superimpose on this the geographic spread, the number of service settings and centres, the range of services, the very many care groups from children to elderly, from physical to mental conditions, and it becomes apparent that we need to have the most modern and comprehensive of information systems to support a daunting challenge. The world of information and communications technology (ICT) is there to be exploited. It presents us with very significant opportunities but these can only be properly realised if we are elaborate, ambitious and comprehensive in our endeavours to ensure that a strategy exists by way of response.
