Event Details


Due to the rail strikes scheduled for 4th October this event is now a virtual event.  Accordingly, the agenda has been tweaked to account for the new format and all constraints on attendance have been removed.


We are thrilled to host a special event for the launch of NHS England's latest – and most significant to date – funding programme for NHS Gigabit.

NHS England have made us promise not to reveal any spoilers, but we are sure that when you hear the details, they’ll have your complete attention for this represents a significant multimillion-pound opportunity.


Meeting Objectives

  • Make suppliers aware of the programme, immediate priorities for getting organisations to gigabit and how we want to support them to get there.
  • Inform suppliers of the role they can play in assisting organisations to get to Gigabit and the benefits to those suppliers who engage effectively.
  • Update suppliers on HSCN and NHS England live services, and the PSTN Switch-off programme.



Date: Wednesday 4th October 2023

Time: 10:00 – 13:00

Venue: Online event – an email will be sent to you within a few hours of your registration with the join link to the online event.
