HSCN Network

A new Network for an improved Health and Social Care Service

Migrating from N3 to HSCN

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

Health and care providers will be able to obtain network connectivity from multiple suppliers in a competitive marketplace and in collaboration with other health and social care organisations. Daisy is one of those suppliers. It is expected that the marketplace will extend to the private sector, and to services such as opticians, pharmacies and even to other public sector services such as ambulances, the police and even as far as education.
