Northern Doctors Urgent Care (NDUC), part of the Vocare group, delivers urgent care and out-of-hours GP services to 1.5 million patients in the North East of England, including Northumberland, Teesside, North and South Tyneside and Newcastle. With 3,300 staff, nine call centres and over 40 additional sites, Vocare is a true 24 hour a day operation utilising a range of skilled professionals and critical systems vital for delivering its high quality healthcare services to patients and commissioners. The new solution implemented Juniper SRX Series Firewalls with Pulse Secure Connect Secure appliances including its endpoint integrity assessment technology to check and remediate end user devices prior to authentication. Connect Secure offers SSL VPN access with increased protection for its BYOD users against local malware. Access control was further strengthened by an RSA based two-factorauthentication solution and Pulse Secure Access portal solution to allow streamlined application distribution and per user policy based application control. NDUC also deployed a VoIP telephony solution from Shoretel to allow assistance calls to be routed from the call centre teams to clinicians using just an Internet connection. 03/10/2016 11:57
