Health and Social Care Network (HSCN)

The Health and Social Care Network (HSCN) provides a reliable, efficient and flexible way for health and care organisations to access and exchange electronic information.

The Health and Social Care Network (HSCN) is a new data network for health and care organisations which replaced N3.

It provides the underlying network arrangements to help integrate and transform health and social care services by enabling them to access and share information more reliably, flexibly and efficiently while benefitting from improved network and bandwidth capacity, financial savings and easier and smoother access to clinical systems.
