The provision of free public Wi-Fi being made accessible to patients across NHS hospitals and GP surgeries, doesn’t come without its risks. Organisations must provide a segregated network platform to ensure that business critical apps and bandwidth aren’t affected and that patients and visitors can access the internet freely and securely. Implementing a mechanism which separates network traffic, will allow higher levels of service and security policies to be applied to individual SSIDs and VLANs, resulting in a more positive user experience.
Government funding such as the Estates and Technology Transformation Fund has been set out to help accelerate the development of infrastructure to enable the improvement and expansion of patient care and support general practice and technology.
In a challenging financial environment, utilising the ETTP will help provide health organisations with the financial support they need to accelerate the development and infrastructure of their IT network services.
