It is undeniable that our NHS staff are under a great deal of pressure at the moment, with long waiting lists, patients waiting on trolleys in corridors, and having to deal with angry relatives because of this.

I think there are lessons in the NHS which relate very closely to what the other members of said about the dangers of overreliance on paper rather than electronic systems, where it is much, much easier to keep track of what's happening.
