[HL2022]
§ Lord Hunt of Kings Heath
The details of specific investments on information management and technology (IM&T) are contained in the health authority allocations circulars for the years 2000–01, 2001–02 and 2002–03. The spend of the funds for 2000–01 were not specifically tracked. In 2001–02 £113 million was hypothecated for IM&T investment; of this £30 million was identified in spending plans. For 2001–02 an additional £50 million capital was made available. All of this was spent on IM&T targets.
