British Prime Minister David Cameron is reportedly to receive a personal iPad application created by the Cabinet Office that will him provide real-time access to NHS waiting-list figures, employment numbers and a whole host of other data, the Telegraph reports.

According to the report, the idea was inspired by advisers to the U.S and will deliver real-time data from social networks, including information from Twitter and Google, helping the Prime Minister utilise his iPad for important government business.

iPads have become the tablet of choice for the world’s leaders, with both U.S President Obama and David Cameron utilising the devices extensively within their offices. Earlier in the year it emerged that Obama was a beta tester for the iPad 2 and uses a DODOcase to protect his Apple gadget.

Despite the shift to digital technology, Mr Cameron is still insistant that submissions are made through the formal process, which includes the delivery of papers so he can add notes and submit to staff for review.

According to sources, the Cabinet Office is currently working on the app and it is expected to be available for Mr Cameron to use in March.
