End-to-end assurance

IaaS supports the Government’s ‘Cloud First’ approach by providing scalable resources that you can rapidly flex up and down to meet your changing requirements. It also aligns with other public sector requirements, is G-Cloud approved and accredited, and is available over PSN.

There are also significant management and cost advantages, critical in a time of constant budget cuts and calls for greater efficiency. The infrastructure is permanently up to date, and the time-consuming and costly task of maintaining the environment is removed as all hardware and software upgrades are included in your IaaS contract. And because you only pay for the resource you use, IaaS provides a highly cost-efficient operational environment, offering a fixed price contract for usage and ensuring predictable operational costs.

NHS e-Referral Service

NHS Digital are continually looking to improve and develop their NHS e-Referral Service to make it easier, quicker and more convenient to use by referrers, providers and patients whilst delivering enhanced features to users.
