Node4 is HSCN ready. Are you?

HSCN is the new data network for the NHS and other social care organisations, as well as their network of third-party commercial suppliers. Replacing the outdated N3, HSCN now allows multiple compliant suppliers to provide connectivity, boosting collaboration and cost savings in an ever competitive and demanding industry.

We know that organisations like you demand tight cyber security, may need immediate disaster recovery, and cannot experience disruption under any circumstances. These are very specific challenges but luckily, we have in-house technical experts who know how to combat them.

Why choose us?

We were built and managed by technology specialists who design, implement and manage mission-critical work like this every day.

Thanks to our size and adaptable infrastructure, we have a vast array of other IT solutions, which can be added into HSCN connectivity to help you transform your businesses for the digital age.

Not to mention our ISO27001 accreditation, our scope across the UK, and our experience working alongside the country’s very best partners, including Cisco.


Benefits for connecting to HSCN

  • The ability to send and receive secure data between health and social care organisations, supporting information and service sharing
  • Cheaper connectivity than previous N3 services
  • Simpler network Information Governance requirements
  • Helping staff across health and care work together
  • Standardised networks
  • Simpler access to NHS Digital’s national applications, making it easier to confirm NHS numbers, share care plans and access Summary Care Records
