Our networking equipment has had an upgrade and a bit of a cable tidy.
We are doing this as part of our Digital Development, before our imminent connection to the NHS's Health and Social Care Network (HSCN): digital.nhs.uk/services/health-and-social-care-network
HSCN provides the underlying network arrangements to help integrate and transform health and social care services by enabling them to access and share information more reliably, flexibly and efficiently while benefiting from improved network and bandwidth capacity, financial savings and easier and smoother access to clinical systems:
enabling organisations to rationalise their connectivity by obtaining public (internet) and private network services over a single connection
allowing simple access to NHS Digital’s national applications, making it easier to work collaboratively across both health and social care
making it easier to share information, confirm NHS numbers, share patient Care Plans and access Summary Care Records.
