5 reasons to switch to the new O2 Health Tariff

By Paul Maddox, Head of Health, O2

Mobile connectivity will be key for the NHS to reach their goal of being paper free at point of care from 2020. At O2, we recognise that meeting a challenging target like this requires partners and suppliers to step up and give their support.

That’s why we launched the O2 Health Tariff, a unique connectivity package exclusively for health organisations in April.

It provides the assurance that health managers need to deploy their mobile connectivity, providing a range of end to end security and device management capabilities. If you’re part of a healthcare organisation with 500 or more staff, here are five reasons to switch to the new O2 Health Tariff:

1. Peace of mind:

O2 was the first network to achieve government CAS(T) approval, which ensures our network is built, operated and managed to the required level for it to handle public sector data, so you can be confident that patient-critical data is in safe hands.

2. More time to care

With a secure, remote data connection, anytime access to familiar systems takes the hassle out of admin. That means more time for what really matters: caring.

3. Control costs

You can get more from a tight budget, and you get the device and SIM visibility you need to control costs.

4. Monitor data usage

With SIM management you can control how your data is used, not just your devices. We also provide Intrusion protection software to help protect your data and devices from cyber-attacks.

5. Complete Mobile Device Management (MDM)

All of your organisation’s devices can be centrally controlled, configured, managed and reported on.


From just £12 a month per user (ex. VAT), it offers unlimited calls and texts with 2GB of data, allowing data to be shared between other users.

“We believe that the people providing exceptional care deserve exceptional connectivity to help them to be at their very best. With the O2 Health Tariff, healthcare professionals can access the information they need wherever they are, helping to remove the hassle of admin and freeing up resource.

“With peace of mind that customer data is safe and secure, and the SIM visibility to control costs, our new tariff makes it easier for users to focus on improving patient outcomes.”

O2 is proud to be working alongside the NHS, and of what we’re achieving together. Whether it’s helping to take mental health care to where it’s really needed, or introducing game-changing innovations such as improving patient flow, we’re committed to adding value from the ground up.
