Connectivity Hub

Connectivity has an increasingly important role to play in delivering digitally mature health services and NHS organisations must make plans to ensure digital transformation is not hindered by poor connectivity.

The Connectivity Hub supports the NHS to get the most out of its existing WiFi deployments and infrastructure. We provide advice and guidance and run trials that allow organisations to apply for funding to explore how cutting-edge wireless technologies can support the delivery of better health and care.


Wireless trials

Our wireless trials are designed to help the NHS understand how existing and emerging WiFi solutions can be utilised, optimised, and orchestrated to support the delivery of better health and social care. 

Find out about how to become a trialist. 

The Future Connectivity wireless trials application process will launch at the end of March 2024. If you are interested in becoming a trialist for 2024/2025, please complete our initial short registration form to be contacted when applications launch.


Advice and guidance

The Connectivity Hub produces, sources, and shares expert technical knowledge to support the NHS to plan and deliver the right connectivity to meet local needs.

To target and prioritise the right blend of system knowledge and expert independent advice, we engage with health and care organisations, directly and through surveys, to understand their connectivity challenges and:

  • procure and publish externally independent commissioned reports into priority topics
  • produce, adapt and promote guidance within the team to address the challenges identified

Health-focused expert knowledge and further resources are available to help NHS organisations plan and deliver innovative connectivity solutions.
