Re: Is it that hard
Hi, doctor + software engineer with infosec experience here...
Yep it is hard. UK medical careers frown upon outside interests other than medical service provision.
Hospital organisations generally employ low calibre IT hardware guys who don't know or don't give a shit.
Finally, NHS Trusts won't buy any new technology solutions unless they've already been deployed in many other hospitals first... So they're stuck with 1980s technology thanks to their own bad procurement ideals. Why else are we still using f##king pagers and fax machines in hospitals in 2018?
