National Health Service organisations are being supported to upgrade existing Microsoft Windows operating systems, allowing them to reduce potential vulnerabilities and increase cyber resilience.
As of 30 June 2019, approximately 1.05 million NHS computers are using Windows 7 from a total of around 1.37 million. This equates to approximately 76% of the NHS estate currently on Windows 7.
All NHS organisations, with the exception of one which had already upgraded to Windows 10, have signed up to receive Windows 10 licences and Advanced Threat Protection.
Deployment of Windows 10 is going well and in line with target to make sure the NHS is operating on supported software when Windows 7 goes out of support in 2020.
