NHS Windows Managed Service Agreement

Bytes are THE partner for NHS Digital for the provision of Windows Operating System licenses across the NHS in England. This web site is the central place to find all the information on the agreement and how to access it. More information will be available as the agreement comes live, so keep checking back here

The Windows Managed Service Agreement provides Microsoft Operating System licenses including the Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) facility. It is free of charge to local NHS organisations.

The ATP facility gives local organisations better cyber security protection in their own right. And, since it is also linked into the NHS Digital Data Security Centre (DSC), it improves cyber security protection for local health and care communities, and the NHS as a whole.
