Government must fund technology, says NHS Employers in response to Topol Review


Responding to the Topol Review, Danny Mortimer, chief executive of NHS Employers, which is part of the NHS Confederation, said: “Technology can have a transformative effect on our health service, making it better for patients all over the country as this welcome report makes clear.  Our teams will welcome the thoughtful analysis set out by Dr Topol and his colleagues.

“Clearly there is a lot of work ahead for employers to work with our teams and our patients to design, implement and embed new technologies to support the delivery of care to our communities.

“The deployment of technology will of course require significant resource and investment and we would repeat that this needs to be properly funded by government and not left to already stretched individual NHS trusts to dig even deeper to fund.”
