Internet First – Industry workshop

13th November 2019 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

Internet First Working Groups

NHS Digital are holding an Internet First workshop on Wednesday 13 November 2019.

The aim of the workshop is to understand how consumer network service providers (CNSPs) and digital service providers can support health and social care organisations to move to Internet First and reduce the reliance on the centrally managed national private network.

This is a hands-on workshop to consider:

  • the journey and timescales for making digital services accessible over the internet
  • what standards, national support and guidance are required to support health and social care organisations to transition safely off the national private network
  • what procurement and commercial frameworks are required to enable CNSPs and digital service suppliers to work with local health and social care providers in a consistent and coherent way.

The outputs from this workshop will be used to determine any topics that require further detailed investigation through specialist working groups, jointly chaired by NHS Digital, Innopsis and techUK.

Experts from CNSPs, digital service providers, health and social care organisations and other interested parties will be sought to participate in the working groups to address specific issues in the areas of service management, technical architecture/networking, security, procurement and commercial.

Depending on the number and complexity of topics for discussion, the plan is to run these working groups until the end of December 2019.  The outputs from the workshop and working groups will help shape the development of the Internet First operating model in readiness for public consultation early 2020.
