CSC to axe 640 jobs in the UK
US company CSC is to cut 640 UK jobs relating to its 'unworkable' Lorenzo NHS IT contract, taking the total of announced job cuts to over 1,100 since February, according to the Unite trade union.
The majority of cuts will affect CSC employees in Chesterfield, Chorley, Leeds and Solihull, Unite said in a statement on Monday. "This announcement of a further 640 job cuts has dealt our members a severe body blow and left them absolutely devastated," Unite national officer Kevin O'Gallagher said.
The Lorenzo patient care records project has been hanging in the balance since a series of damning reports about Lorenzo produced by government bodies and MPs last year. CSC said at the beginning of April that talks with the UK government, which were due to be concluded by March 31, are still ongoing, ZDNet.com reported.
