The HSCN Buying Guide
The HSCN Buying Guide provides useful information to new and existing customers considering buying a HSCN connection.
The new dynamic purchasing system (DPS) for HSCN Access Services, RM3825, is live for customers. Crown Commercial Service (CCS) have also published HSCN procurement templates and guidance on their website.
RM3825 is recommended by NHS Digital as the most efficient route to market for HSCN procurement and we're expecting all HSCN compliant suppliers to join the DPS. Read more on the CCS website
