Health and Social Care Network (HSCN)

MLL Telecom is proud to be a leading SME at the forefront of developing the Health and Social Care Network (HSCN) programme.

The HSCN programme replaces the Healthcare Sector’s N3 system, creating a ‘network of networks’ which acts like one single network. The HSCN enables health and social care service providers to deliver, share and consume services from anywhere on the HSCN and with anyone else on the HSCN, regardless of their location or network supplier. This move to HSCN allows NHS organisations to access a wider range of competitive, market leading network solutions and enables the them to access and share information more flexibly and efficiently.

With all existing N3 customers given a mandate, in March 2017, to migrate to HSCN by 31 August 2020, MLL became the first supplier to gain HSCN compliance, connecting the first live customer to HSCN in Oct 2017. By April 2019, we had migrated 218 circuits to new HSCN networks, 38% of all HSCN migrations at that point. By the end of 2019, we had migrated 1,350 circuits to HSCN.

MLL are proud to able to say that we were the first CNSP to have migrated all our customers’ HSCN circuits, ahead of the NHS Digital deadline, having migrated 1,744 circuits by 6 August 2020.

We have a dedicated team of Prince2 Project Managers to make your transition to HSCN easy and stress free. You’ll have direct access to:

  • HSCN Specialist – who can answer your HSCN queries.
  • Technical Specialist – to review and approve your service design
