Change of domain name for CSIP and CSED
The 25 March was D-Day for the networks formerly hosted by the Care Services Improvement Partnership (CSIP) and the Care Services Efficiency Delivery (CSED) programme. The networks have changed their domain name as part of their evolving identity and relationship to the regions and the Department of Health.
The new domain name will be www.DHcarenetworks.org.uk
Accessing the networks
For individual networks the network name just needs to be added. For example, the personalisation network will be
www.DHcarenetworks.org.uk/personalisation, while the CSED programme website material can be reached at www.DHcarenetworks.org.uk/csed.
The networks or programmes will still be accessible through the old web addresses but they will instantly redirect visitors to the new domain.
CSIP ceases to exist as a separate entity and brand on 31 March .The various programmes which previously worked under the CSIP umbrella will continue their work either in the regions or as part of the central policy teams of the Department of Health.
John Bolton, director of strategic finance for social care, local government and care partnerships, said:
The important thing is that the networks are very much alive and carrying on their work. I’m delighted to be working closely with these key teams so that, together with colleagues across the Department of Health, we can drive forward the Putting People First agenda and help re-shape policy and services to really put users at the heart of everything we do.
Jeremy Porteus, National Programme Lead, said:
I am sure the networks will continue serving their thousands of members and that the change in identity will have little or no impact on you.
Domain names for individual networks include:
