Thin Ice

Picture of a husky.Hindsight being a perfect science, I can see why Richard Granger, Director General of NHS IT, seemed more relaxed than I have seen him before at the presentation the other day. Times Online reports he is moving on by the end of this year.

Mr. Granger's most quoted comment likens the NPfIT's suppliers to huskies pulling a sled. The weaker dogs would be shot and fed to the rest to sustain them and as an example. Certainly, some well-known huskies are gone, Accenture and IDX being two. Lead dogs have also fallen to the back of the tugline. But will the remaining huskies survive the departure of the sled driver? And will they be challenged by new teams pulling different sleds? We'll see.
