Network slicing is the 5G research field that addresses the services requirements compliance over the same network. In order to robustly and securely manage the different slices in a network, we propose to use blockchain, a distributed structure that stores data without the need of an external entity to ensure data integrity and reliability. In this paper, we present a proposal on deploying a network slicing solution for Non-Public Networks (NPNs) in health environments using blockchain technology. Our solution aims to provide both performance isolation over wireless networks and privacy.
