Gosh, isn't it more important that NHS replace all these mistake-making crappenjee 'doctors' with ones that CAN ACTUALLY SPEAK ENGLISH AS A FIRST LANGUAGE? There are med schools all over the UK, where are the British Doctors that the tax-payer forks our millions for?

I doubt they'll end up with actual iPads, more of a knockoff type as for a start they will be nicked(along with patient data) not just by patients but also visitors and staff. I've worked in the NHS and nurses are far from innocent even going as far as nicking patient's meals. Also they aren't exactly computer literate or that intelligent so won't be able to use them properly.
