NHS Spine to be Shutdown for 2 Days

NHS Connecting for Health services that use the ‘Spine’ such as Choose and Book and GP2GP will be out of action for a planning maintenance period from 9-11 of Novemeber:

The agency said the upgrades did not represent a complete replacement of the Spine. “The exercise is solely an uplift of the database management hardware and software. The application code and functionality of the Spine remain unchanged. The change will be transparent to users,” said a spokesperson.

BT says the upgrade, which includes a refresh of the Spine software and hardware, is required in order to “enable a more automated, faster and surer failover process and continuing levels of quality support.”
