KCOM nets third HSCN connectivity contract

KCOM has secured a third contract to deliver Health and Social Care Network connectivity.
The communications and IT services provider has been selected as the preferred bidder for the delivery of HSCN connectivity in the North East following completion of an Aggregated Procurement (AP) managed by NHS Digital on behalf of health and care organisations in the region. The business could be worth nearly £500,000.
Over the next three years KCOM will be providing HSCN connectivity to 10 health and social care customers in the North East of England providing 15 managed connections that will allow these organisations to share information and work more efficiently across a common, safe and reliable platform.
The news comes after it was announced KCOM had also secured preferred bidder status for HSCN delivery in two areas of London as part of the Once for London (OfL) AP, with a contract that could be worth up to £13.3m.
Iain Shearman, Director of KCOM’s national network services business, said: “We are now looking forward to working closely with health and care organisations in the North East as well as NHS Digital on making HSCN a success.”
