For NHS organisations that run NHSmail, all users will have access to Teams, subject to local administration and configuration. NHS Digital will support implementation of Microsoft Teams locally via its NHSmail support site.

NHSmail is a customised hosted Microsoft email service, run by Accenture.

Those NHS organisations that don’t run NHSmail will need to contact Microsoft directly.
