Digital connectivity in care homes

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.

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.
