Description: The HSCN is a key transitional stage in achieving the vision of making digital health and social care services ubiquitously available over the internet.   In providing both public and private connectivity over one connection it will: i) support organisations and services move to internet and cloud based architectures while also ii) providing highly performant access to the critical digital services upon which health and care relies that are not currently available on the internet and iii) help organisations protect themselves against network related cybersecurity threats.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: The Amber/Red delivery confidence rating reflects the significant challenge in completing the HSCN migration and decommissioning the legacy infrastructure migration on time. The HSCN programme team have developed an action plan to address all recommendations from the most recent IPA review and continue to work with all consumers and suppliers involved to maximise the pace of migration.
Start date: 2012-03-29
End date: 2021-03-31

Baseline: £83.71m
Forecast: £86.44m
Variance: 3.00%
Variance text: Budget variance less than 5%
Whole Life Cost: £392.76m
WLCost text: The programme remains on track to deliver in line with the whole life costs forecast in the HSCN Full Business Case addendum which was approved on 7 July 2017. The reported baseline in this transparency return has been reduced by £306.7m compared with previous years returns as this years’ return is for central spend only and excludes local spend. Local spend has been removed from the baseline as the department does not have visibility of these costs so is unable to accurately report on them.
