The NHS has signed a £9m one-year deal with O2 for the provision mobile services and devices to the coronavirus vaccination programme.

Newly published commercial information reveals that the contract with the network operator came into effect on Christmas Eve and runs until the end of 2022.

The contract also covers the provision of SandBlast – a “threat-detection technology” created by the security firm Check Point, the Moda mobile device management tool form Asavie, and Workspace ONE, a platform from VMware that aims to allow organisations to “manage any app on any device by integrating access control, application management and multi-platform end point management”.

Managed logistics and managed support services are also included in the deal.

Details of which tariffs and how many devices will be purchased via the engagement are redacted from the contract.

O2, which is owned by Spanish company Telefonica, last year jointly won an £8.5m deal to provide thousands of phones, laptops and connectivity services for the vaccination programme. IT reseller Computacenter was also part of that contract.
