N3 Hosting

Hosting in N3 compliant data centres. The Redcentric N3 hosting service allows organisations to host their applications and data within our secure, resilient N3-connected hosting environment. Our UK data centres are connected to the NHS N3 network and have been accredited for N3 hosting services.

Organisations that need to provide access to systems, applications and data over the N3 network can benefit from our high performance N3 hosting service and resilient network.

Redcentric's N3 hosting service is backed by our 24/7 support team and utilises dedicated fibre links into a number of UK data centres. Data is also replicated across two secure locations, protecting against any loss of data in the event of a disaster.


Redcentric plc (formally InTechnology Managed Services) has been providing NHS network services for many years. We have been through the rigorous accreditation and certification processes to ensure that our N3 hosting services are current and of the highest standards.

Our accreditations for N3 hosting:

  • Information Governance Statement of Compliance (IGSoC)
  • NHS Health & Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) - accredited N3 ISP (Network Access Agreement 0740)
  • Independent aggregator of IGSoC Version 13 with a score of 100%
  • Code of Connection approved (3rd party N3 hosting provider onto the N3 network by HSCIC)
  • Compliant Commercial Third Party (NACS Code YGMAP)
  • Accredited to store patient data for and behalf of the NHS
  • Reading & Harrogate data centres are PCI Compliant for physical hosting services
  • ISO27001 and ISO9001 certified


HSCIC has granted us “commercial aggregator” status - one of only two approved N3 service providers. This means we can dramatically reduce the cost and time it takes to connect you to the N3 network. Through a defined N3 on-boarding, we work closely with organisations to advise and support them through the process, reducing the cost, time and knowledge burden that had previously put so many suppliers off.


Connecting to, and providing services over the N3 network can be complex, but we're here to help every step of the way. If you would like to discuss your N3 requirements please contact our N3 team at n3@redcentricplc.com.
