S5W-05061: Miles Briggs (Lothian)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 25 November 2016

To ask the Scottish Government what assessment it has made of the NHS computer systems, and which operating system does the NHS currently use.

Answered by: Shona Robison 12 December 2016

The Scottish Government in partnership with boards is constantly evaluating current national and local systems to ensure they are still fit for purpose and resilient. For example in 2016 there has been a board level gap analysis of the critical controls needed to mitigate cyber-attacks.

Details of specific operating systems covered on a board by board bases are not held centrally and it would be the responsibility of individual health boards to provide this information.
