Remote working has become of utmost importance during the coronavirus crisis, and Microsoft has seen a major uptake of their collaboration platform, Microsoft Teams in thousands of companies around the world.

Now Microsoft has made Microsoft Teams available for free to the largest healthcare provider in the world, UK’s National Health Service (NHS).

The news was confirmed by Dr Simon Eccles, Chief Clinical Information Officer for Health and Care of the NHS.

The NHS has published a Getting Started guide at this location here.

The current implementation appears to be focused around internal meetings, but Microsoft has also released a platform designed for remote consultation which could relieve further pressure on the service.

In addition, Microsoft has enabled features like the pager-like Priority Notification for their app specifically designed for healthcare workers.
