What is the HSCN?

The Health and Social Care Network (HSCN) will provide a reliable and efficient way for health and social care organisations to access and exchange information.

We’re delighted to be an accredited Consumer Network Service Provider (CNSP) and we’re committed to helping our customers with the transition to the HSCN.

Our new catalogue of simple-to-procure network solutions make sure that health and social care professionals can access the right information at the right time, no matter where they’re working.

We have years of experience delivering complex services to health and social care organisations, experience that you can rely on to help you migrate seamlessly to the HSCN.

How BT can help you move to the HSCN

Moving to the HSCN brings new possibilities for the digital transformation of health and social care. By choosing BT, you’re choosing a provider who’ll take the hassle out of your transformation, and give you access to:

  • The UK’s largest fibre network
  • The UK’s biggest, fastest mobile network
  • The UK’s largest wi-fi network

We also work with world-class partners to ensure you get the best tools and devices to make it easier to make lives better.

  • Mobile devices
  • Clinical apps and apps for your sector
  • Hosted cloud services like Microsoft 365 and cloud-based phone systems

Connectivity in the NHS

We worked with iGov to commission a survey to find out what factors are driving the IT strategy of NHS organisations.

Moving from N3 to HSCN is having a big impact across all organisations. But some are further along on the journey than others.

Collaboration, mobility and doing more for less are all key priorities. And, not surprisingly, doing this securely is a concern across all organisations surveyed.

N3 SP contract arrangements finished earlier this year. But don’t worry, we’ll continue to support your existing services until you’re ready to migrate to HSCN services. You can trust us to make your migration to the HSCN simple, straightforward, and successful.
