Research and Markets: Reform within austerity: UK public sector ICT overview and forecast to 2016-17
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ccr22m/reform_within)
has announced the addition of the "Reform
within austerity: UK public sector ICT overview and forecast to 2016-17"
report to their offering.
Two years into its programme of government the coalition continues to
wrestle with economic challenges and is already experiencing its fair
share of events. Recovery of the economy has not been as sustained or as
marked as the government hoped. Government forecasts for growth did not
materialize as planned, and instead the economy hit a double-dip
recession, which resulted in the chancellor of the exchequer announcing
an extension of austerity measures.
The intended reforms of the NHS within n the Health and Social Care Bill
continue to be opposed by a majority of clinicians and their
professional bodies, which has kept the government in an energy-sapping
battle of wills with the very doctors they seek to support. The events
that triggered the Leveson enquiry into phone hacking and into relations
between the press, politicians and civil servants, together with the
proceedings of the enquiry itself, have exposed the actions of
individual ministers and the prime minister himself to forensic
scrutiny. While the coalition remains stable, it is under pressure and
the strains between the coalition partners are beginning to tell. In the
circumstances, the coalition's appetite for headline-grabbin
far-reaching reforms is diminished, and for large-scale ICT programmes
it is virtually non-existent.
