Friday 19 May 2017

General Systems Update

NHS Supply Chain can confirm that its systems have not been impacted by the recent NHS-wide cyber-attack. We have taken precautionary measures to ensure that our systems are protected from all current threats.

NHS Supply Chain’s customer facing eCommerce services remain unaffected and continue to be available for use. These include:

  • Online Catalogue and Ordering
  • eDC/eDC Gold
  • eBilling
  • PEPPOL services
  • Supplier Portal.

Next Steps

To help protect against the current and any future threat, we recommend that you ensure all of your trust PC clients are at the necessary patch level.

If any eDC/eDC Gold users are experiencing difficulty connecting to the NHS Supply Chain network, please ensure that trust firewalls are configured to allow http and https access on ports 80 and 443 to the following NHS Supply Chain web addresses:

  • rda.supplychain.nhs.uk
  • data.supplychain.nhs.uk
  • update.supplychain.nhs.uk
  • media.supplychain.nhs.uk
