HSCN Access Services
ICT procurement for the Health and Social Care Network
HSCN is the Health and Social Care Network. The HSCN Access Dynamic Purchasing System (RM3825) provides a route to market for health, social care, and related customers, to procure access to the HSCN. It can be used to procure connectivity, closely related services, and support with transition and implementation.
This agreement utilises a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS), which is a public sector sourcing tool for services and goods. It is similar to an electronic framework, but new suppliers can join at any time.
The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) worked together with NHS Digital and industry to develop the HSCN Access Services DPS, which offers a number of key benefits for both customers and suppliers:
- A dynamic and competitive marketplace: Complete requirements for network services in a changing marketplace – resulting in improved consumer choice and improved value for money.
- HSCN-compliant connectivity services: Provides access to the services customers need, enabling secure sharing of information with other health and social care bodies.
- Supplementary services: Including PSN connectivity, cloud access, ISP services, Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF), network access and security, Virtual Private Networks (VPN), firewalls, and intrusion prevention & detection.
- Professional services: We can also provide you with transition and implementation support.
