The delivery of electronic records is being taken forward as part of the Integrated Care Records Service (ICRS) which is core to the National Programme for Information Technology.

An advertisement was issued on 31 January 2003 in the Official Journal of the European Community calling for expressions of interest from the private sector to supply professional IT applications and services to the National Health Service in England as a key element of the implementation process for ICRS. Longlisted suppliers are currently being invited to submit proposals for ICRS that will include access to records and the functionality needed to support clinical practice.
