Node4 is HSCN ready Are you?

HSCN is the new data network for the NHS and other social care organisations, as well as their network of third-party commercial suppliers. Replacing the outdated N3, HSCN now allows multiple compliant suppliers to provide connectivity, boosting collaboration and cost savings in an ever competitive and demanding industry.

Why choose us?

We were built and managed by technology specialists who design, implement and manage mission-critical work like this every day.

Thanks to our size and adaptable infrastructure, we have a vast array of other IT solutions, which can be added into HSCN connectivity to help you transform your businesses for the digital age.

Not to mention our ISO27001 accreditation, our scope across the UK, and our experience working alongside the country’s very best partners, including Cisco.
