NHS heads have sent a team of bug busters to help four health service trusts who have been identified as "at risk of disruption" from the Year 2000 problem.
The four trusts that have been singled as needing urgent help to become Y2K compliant are Mid Essex Hospital Services Trust, Rochdale Healthcare NHS Trust, Oxford Ambulance Trust and Luton and Dunstable NHS Trust.
Independent campaign group, Taskforce 2000 said that other NHS trusts could be added to the list. "It has done a huge amount, but there could still be gaps because of the scale of the operation," said a Taskforce 2000 spokesperson.
The NHS as a whole has already tested 236,000 medical devices. The 17,000 remaining pieces of critical equipment are to be tested for Y2K compliance in September.
