PCNs can decide to use a system in advance of assurance being in place, on the assumption that use of the system will then fall under national arrangements, but PCNs would do this at their own risk.
PCNs may continue to use existing booking solutions where preferred. If PCNs choose to procure and pay for booking solutions locally, NHS England and NHS Improvement advise that there is a process to ensure the system meets the published requirements, as well as relevant standards on IG, clinical safety and cyber security.
We're supporting the NHS with safe and efficient use of data and technology, as the UK delivers the coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination programme.
