The force behind the eGovernment Gateway, Alan Mather, explores its history in his weblog.

Today, he writes, "The Gateway has 5.1 million registered users with nearly 50 services from 20 different government entities. If you are sending a Self Assessment tax return, claiming Child Tax Credit, paying a parking fine in Shepway, sending in your VAT return, checking your pension entitlement or booking a session to give blood, then you are using the Gateway. Sometimes, though, you won't even know that you are because the Gateway allows departments to present its screens in their own format and using their own brand."

"Over the next twelve months, over two dozen new departments will make new services available. Most excitingly more than 40 services for 43 Local Authorities will be developed, making the Gateway truly the centre piece of UK government's joined up initiatives. "

I can't wait Alan. Giving blood and joined-up Government sound like one and the same to me mate!
