NHS Wales

In 2006 the Welsh NHS made a deal with Microsoft for desktop and mobile computing software claiming that it would lead to savings of £8.5 million. The deal includes 35,000 desktop software licences and incorporates all local health boards and trusts in Wales for three years.

Health workers will receive IT vouchers and "home -use" scheme will allow staff to purchase cheaper software licences for their home computers.

The Health Minister at the Welsh Assembly Dr Brian Gibbons, the director of IM&T Mike Lugg and the head of IT in Bro Morgannwg Carol Mustad have all commented positively on the new deal[1].
