Leeds NHS trust has 345 fax machines. I want to get rid of them

Leeds NHS trust has 345 fax machines. I want to get rid of them As chief information officer, I can see how dangerous and inefficient fax machines are

In the past six months there have been two polarised obsessions with technology in health. Artificial intelligence: here to save the universe! And the more awkward conversation around why there are still more than 8,000 fax machines churning out paper throughout the health system.

The key question for those of us working in NHS IT is: which of these obsessions needs investing in today?

Can the Christmas No 1 be the last ring of a fax machine set to jingle bells? We think it can in Leeds. The Guardian
