TSSM offers NHS trusts access to lessons learned from other deployments to help them in deploying solutions.
When planning digital activity or if a trust is experiencing challenges during a digital deployment a trust can ask for advice and guidance from Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) covering a number of subjects including infrastructure, testing, business change, service management and clinical engagement.
TSSM brings together SME resources from within NHS Digital, NHS England, NHS Improvement, and other NHS trusts. Trusts receiving support still remain accountable for delivery. However, having access to national NHS SME capabilities, experience and learning will increase the chances of successful deployment. TSSM works closely with trusts and their clinical and technical teams to provide specialist advice and guidance in areas that can be difficult for trusts to find themselves.
TSSM has supported more than 25 organisations since it was formally established in April 2018.
