star this property answer text <p>We estimate there are approximately 2,300 machines in the National Health Service currently still operating on Windows XP which is no longer supported by Microsoft. To be compliant with the mandatory Data Security and Protection Toolkit, NHS organisations must operate on supported systems or have plans in place to mitigate the risk such as segregating those machines from the network. There are valid reasons why some machines cannot be upgraded from Windows XP, primarily where they run essential locally developed clinical systems that cannot be upgraded or replaced.</p><p>We are supporting NHS organisations to upgrade their existing Microsoft Windows operating systems, allowing them to reduce potential vulnerabilities and increase cyber resilience.</p><p>We signed a multi-million pound contract with Microsoft in 2018 to support the NHS to upgrade their existing Microsoft Windows operating systems onto Windows 10.</p><p>All health and care organisations that have access to NHS patient data must annually complete NHS Digital’s Data Security and Protection Toolkit. This details the standards we expect them to adhere to and Data Security Standard 8 advocates that no unsupported operating systems, software or internet browsers are used within the IT estate.</p>
