NHSmail 2 project

NHSmail has a total of half a million active users within the NHS, with over 150 organisations using it as their sole email platform. It currently comprises email, calendar and diary administration, directory, email hygiene (SPAM, malware protection), SMS, and a mail relay service to connect non NHSmail users. It is the only email platform through which sender and receiver can be assured that information is secured in the creation, delivery and receipt of the message.

The platform continues to grow, with a background rate of 15,000 new joiners per month. The current contract will expire, meaning that an alternative needs to be planned.

The NHSmail 2 project has been established to look at options for when the current NHSmail contract comes to an end. Despite the name of the project, no assumptions have yet been made about the solution. Further information will be published on this site as it becomes available.
