Im doing some research into how large systemsprojects fail too deliver, does anyone know anything about the much publised Regional Information Systems Plan in the 1980's developed (lol) by Wessex Health Authority?

What was the root definition of the system and what was the thoery behind such a project, what did they hope too achieve?

here is a brief discussion of what the plan was before it was abandoned in April 1990:

WESSEX REGIONAL HEALTH AUTHORITY
Regional Information Systems Plan (RISP)
CASE FACTS
The regional information systems plan envisaged the development of five core computer systems covering hospital information, manpower, estates, community care and accountancy, operating to common standards and in every district in the region. Development was to be completed within five years.
>>>>>The Regional Health Authority had aimed to install computer terminals in all offices, hospitals and wards in the region. All the core systems were to be accessible form any terminal connected to the network and data in any one application system could be accessed automatically by any other system as necessary.
