We are aware that digital connectivity within care homes could be improved so we have listed links to information we are aware of that may help you. The links are external, so we are not responsible for the content. Also, some of the information has been produced outside Wales so not everything will apply.
Digital connectivity in care homes
Welsh Government Digital Standard for Care Homes
Welsh Government have developed a high-level network connectivity expected standard document. This is a technical document that sets the base for expected connectivity within your home. This could be used by your home as a guide when scoping connectivity improvements with suppliers.
Internet connection deals for care homes
NHS X (the digital department of NHS England) has produced a webpage to support improved connectivity for care homes. We have checked with some of the suppliers to see if they are available in Wales and as we understand most are.
Grants are available to support the cost of installing new gigabit-capable broadband connections.
