Case studies

Strategic health authority deployments

Supporting the delivery of SHA implementation plans

Strategic health authorities SHAs and primary care trusts (PCTs) are responsible for implementing IT systems and services locally. The deployment support team is working closely with SHAs to support them in the deployment of systems.

The following short case studies give some real examples of how the team has already provided valuable support to NHS projects and can add value to your deployments.
