2 December 2015
On Wednesday the government’s Spending Review confirmed that an additional £3.8 billion would be made available for the NHS in 2015/16.

by Cerner UK
24 August 2015
Learning from the experiences and successes of our NHS Trust partners over the years, Cerner’s approach to working with Trusts has evolved over time.
