NHS England has procured a contract for the provision of Federated Data Platform and Associated Services (FDP-AS). The data platform will be owned and controlled by the NHS to unlock the power of NHS data to understand patterns, solve problems, plan services for local populations and ultimately transform the health and care of the people they serve.

The contract value set out is not a committed amount.
Under the terms of the contract, the Authority pays for data platform services as they are consumed according to an agreed pricing schedule and therefore the contract value could increase to a forecasted amount of £330m. This figure is also not a committed amount.
