Taking the Tablets
There are sufficient Apple iPads in this illustration to supply the eleven Health Board members of NHS Orkney. They have recently each been issued with an iPad - at a total cost of £7000 - to become the first public body in Scotland to do away with the use of paper. The intention is to be 'paper light' and so there's been more than the provision of these computers - printers have been removed, ink eliminated and stationery cupboards de-stocked. The intention is to improve performance and make savings by adopting new technologies. Here is a group of health officials being made to take their tablets.
