11 Prison Health-IT timetable so far Update OBC by end of February 05 Release management summary of present position in May 05 Consult with the Professions on User Requirements-March/April Longer term-NOMS IT integration

12 Current position The Department of Health, HM Prison Service and NHS Connecting for Health have developed a joint work programme to deliver a first class information system for all healthcare professionals working within the prison service. A statement of user requirements has been developed and is currently being consulted upon. Whilst a delivery mechanism for the new systems has not been formally agreed, it is intended that this statement will form the basis of a national specification against which clinical systems will be procured Any local procurements can only be considered where clinical care is being compromised because of the lack of an IT system. All purchases should be with the consent of the relevant Strategic Health Authoritys Chief Information Officer and will be subject to future conformance testing
