4.7% apparently is the percentage of XP in the UK NHS. Bigger issue is that central control of IT may mean that machines are not patched in a timely manner, hence the problem. The biggest trust ( Barts ) diverted most work to its neighbours but I gather is now running again. Karim will know more, but might not feel free to tell. Certainly stroke, trauma and heart attacks were diverted away from Barts till yesterday 1330.
Looking forward to tomorrow when computers will be switched on, and more infected ones will be found !
