As of July 2019, approximately 2,300 National Health Service computers are using Windows XP from a total of around 1.4 million. This equates to 0.16% of the NHS estate. We are supporting NHS organisations to upgrade their existing Microsoft Windows operating systems, allowing them to reduce potential vulnerabilities and increase cyber resilience.
