Who can access model.nhs.uk

The tools at model.nhs.uk (including Model Hospital, Model Health System and more) are available to staff working for an organisation which has a core purpose of supporting improvements within the NHS.

Register with your work (NHS, CQC or gov.uk) email address to obtain access, if you work for:
  • an NHS provider trust
  • an NHS commissioner such as a CCG or CSU
  • an STP or ICS
  • the Department of Health and Social Care and it’s arm’s length bodies
The table at the end of this article shows what information you will be able to access, depending on your organisation type.

We don't issue organisation-wide generic logins. Each login must be assigned to an individual and not shared.

Exceptions to the access policy


By exception, you can also apply for access if you are work for an organisation that provides and supports improvements to quality, efficiency and productivity of patient care in the NHS. For example you may be contracted by an NHS provider to support such improvements. This exception basis access requires written permission from senior staff for the NHS organisation(s) whose data you will be accessing. Your host organisation is responsible for revoking your access once the relevant work is completed.

To apply for access by exception, the NHS organisation should email details of the person and the purpose of their access to help@model.nhs.uk and we will guide you through the process.
