Infrastructure:

NHS and other public services to use open source software

What

Staff in the NHS rely on old versions of Windows (see Wannacry attack of last year), MS office and other proprietary software. This needs paid for licenses and its potential is not used by more staff.

Why

In a time of squeezed budgets this could reduce on costs, increase security and create a new workforce of IT professionals with open source/linux skills
