Description: The Health and Social Care Network (HSCN) programme will provide the successor to the N3 network and will establish a reliable, safe and efficient way for health and social care organisations to exchange information. The programme will deliver the replacement network infrastructure and migrate customers from legacy to HSCN delivering significant cost savings.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The HSCN programme was assigned an improved delivery confidence of Amber (from Amber/Red) during an Infrastructure & Projects Authority (IPA) gateway 4 review in September 2017. The review recognised the excellent progress in establishing the central infrastructure whilst also noting the major challenge ahead in migrating circa 14,000 connections from the legacy infrastructure to HSCN over the next 3 years. The programme team has accepted and is implementing all recommendations from the review with particular focus on accelerating the customer journey for migration to HSCN and monitoring early indicators to ensure intervention action is taken early if required.
Start date: 2012-03-29
End date: 2021-03-31
Schedule text: The HSCN programme remains on track to complete the remaining major objectives of completing the migration of circa 14,000 customers from legacy infrastructure to HSCN by August 2020, and making 35% savings on the cost of access connectivity, although it is recognised that due to the highly distributed and locally owned nature of the migration there are significant risks that are being carefully managed by the programme team.
Baseline: £155.05m
Forecast: £96.12m
Variance: -38.00%
Variance text: Baseline includes central and (anticipated) local spend. Forecast includes central spend only (i.e. local organisational spend is excluded). This is because local budgets are owned by other bodies, who do not report their HSCN spend to the programme.
Whole Life Cost: £699.46m
WLCost text: The programme remains on track to delivery in line with the whole life costs in the HSCN Full Business Cases addendum which was approved on 7 July 2017.
