Frequently asked questions

Will there be a change to the service I received before 1st September 2023?

The company delivering the service has changed but you will still receive the same service and raise alerts in the same was as you did before 1st September.

What will happen if I had equipment from the previous supplier?

The equipment you had from your previous supplier will continue to work. As part of the national ‘Analogue to Digital’ shift, if you currently have analogue equipment, this will need changing, but you don’t need to do anything, we will contact you to arrange replacement.

Will my information be safe with NRS Healthcare?

Yes, all personal information will be transferred and kept securely. It will not be shared with anybody.

My needs have changed, who do I contact to seek extra support?

Please contact Health and Social Care Connect on 0845 60 80 191 to discuss matters relating to changing levels of need.

My old equipment has been knocked about a bit over the years. Can I swap it for a newer model?
