Updates

National Updates
Ardens will update and maintain the product as per the Warranties below and in the Terms & Conditions and the Clinical Governance Process. Ardens will provide regular email Updates & Meeting Packs to GP Practices on any significant new national updates on Ardens.

Local Updates
It is the responsibility of the CCG to notify Ardens with any local updates. This may include changes to any of the local formularies, pathways or referral services. When the CCG provides email updates to its GP practices on any new local services, contracts or formulary matters, it is to include supporting information on how they can find this information on Ardens. This will require the CCG communicating with Ardens beforehand so that Ardens can make any changes where needed.
