Janet ensures that the Janet community is kept up to date with networking developments by organising workshops and conferences to cover either general networking issues or more specific topics, for example, Wireless or IPv6. The annual events cover a number of different networking issues from strategy to technical support. Janet also organises events in conjunction with other organisations.

Group administrators:


The NHS-HE Forum was set up in 2001 for IT and networking managers  from  both  the NHS and Higher  Education,  with  an interest  in achieving two-way communication between NHSNet (now replaced  by N3) and Janet. It is an informal group that  relies  on the influence, ideas and action  of its individual members  to make a difference.

Objectives of  the  Forum

This is the usual annual Scotland version of the NHS-HE Forum which has run as an additional, separate event since 2006 to particularly focus on the NHS-HE connectivity and shared content challenges in Scotland.

It last met in October 2012 and has been waiting on news on the Scotland Wide Area Network (SWAN) procurement which is set to replace N3 as the NHS network in Scotland. Ron MacDonald, Head of National Infrastructure Services at NHS National Services Scotland has agreed to be the key note speaker.
