Custom and Third Party Applications

This article outlines the third party and custom applications which are available with the NHSmail Azure AD / Office 365.

The applications listed below have passed a hurdle assessment https://support.nhs.net/knowledge-base/application-hurdle-assessment/ conducted by the Technical Design Authority (TDA). It does not include the core Microsoft Office 365 applications, available here: Core 365 Application Catalogue (SharePoint, App Source, Teams)

IMPORTANT NOTE

Assessments are carried out at tenant level; we recommend that local organisations conduct their own internal assessments prior to using an application.

This is to ensure the application is appropriate for an organisation’s specific use case in terms of functionality and adheres to any local security or clinical safety requirements.

Considerations ahead of any assessment are:

What access permissions does this application/feature need to be used or to access data already stored in the NHSmail shared tenant?

Does this application/feature store any data?

Does it need integration with any other Microsoft 365 application/feature?

Does the application/feature require targeted testing or can it be enabled for all users?

Does the application/feature require additional licensing?

Note: Failure to provide this information will lead to significant delays in progressing your application assessment.

If you are unable to access or locate an application that appears on this list, please allow time for Once approved, applications are typically implemented within a two-week window.

IMPORTANT NOTE

If you wish to have an application assessed, please raise a request here: ServiceNow request process for O365 stores.

In very rare scenarios applications may be withdrawn from the platform due to updates that make them no longer compliant with NHS platform policy.
