NHSmail Intune Service | Overview

1. NHSmail Intune Service

NHSmail Intune is a corporate mobile device management (MDM) service that is integrated with existing NHSmail capabilities and natively supports the multi-organisational nature of NHSmail. NHSmail Intune provides centralised device management capability and allows organisations to maintain a high degree of oversight and local autonomy over their Android, iOS/iPadOS, Windows 10/11 and HoloLens 2 devices using Role Based Access Controls (RBAC).

NHSmail Intune’s configuration provides a core set of centrally managed security policies, settings, and applications common across all organisations. Organisations can customise their own groups, policies, profiles, and apps alongside the centrally managed settings by using custom RBAC permissions.

4. New Model

The NHSmail Intune Service will be moving to a new technical model soon. Webinars will be held in June ahead of this change to provide further information. You can register for these webinars and access the recordings and decks presented here.

All supporting documentation for NHSmail Intune is being updated to reflect the changes to the technical model and this will be available from early July.

A detailed breakdown of settings which will be changing (and those remaining the same) can be found below:

We continually review these settings and reserve the right to change any of these if there are sufficient reasons to do so. Any changes will be communicated to all onboarded organisations in advance of the change.
