News in brief: Health boards pay to leave GPASS IT system

Two health boards in Scotland are paying more than £1 million to move practices off the NHS-developed GPASS IT system.

More than 85 per cent of practices in Scotland use the system, but many have complained about poor functionality. Tayside NHS Board is paying £570,000 to transfer about 70 practices to the Vision IT system. Grampian is paying £500,000 to transfer 50, also to Vision.
