Trusts told to remain vigilant with updated cyber-attack guidance

More than 200,000 victims in around 150 countries have been infected by the ransomware which originated in the United Kingdom and Spain on Friday, before spreading globally.

East Kent Hospitals University Foundation Trust, which runs five hospitals in the county including William Harvey in Ashford and Queen Elizabeth Queen Mother in Margate confirmed it had avoided an attack.

"This is not game over for us", Mr MacGibbon told ABC radio.

Following a meeting of the Government's Cobra contingencies committee, Home Secretary Amber Rudd said more than a million patients had been treated in the course of Monday.

"Police Scotland are investigating the attack, working closely with the National Crime Agency which is leading the UK-wide law enforcement investigative response".

A spokesperson from Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said: "We can confirm that the radiology services affected by the national cyber-attack at Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital have been restored".

NHS computer systems are returning to normal after the ransomware cyber attack, health secretary Shona Robison has said.

NHS organisations across the country were on alert for a possible recurrence of Friday's cyberattack as staff returned to work on Monday.

The NHS was still recovering today, and although hospitals in Sheffield and Doncaster said they were unaffected, health chiefs in those areas asked members of the public to "remain patient" as GP practices got back up to speed.

"There are clearly going to be some small businesses impacted ... but as a whole of nation, we can be confident so far that we've missed the worst of this".

"At this stage, it does seem like that we have missed the major impact of this ransomware incident", Tehan said on Australian Broadcasting Corp radio.

BLOOD tests will resume at hospitals across mid Essex following the NHS cyber attack last week.

"In particular, making sure that our data is properly backed up and making sure that we are using the software patches, the anti-virus patches, that are sent out regularly by manufacturers". There was no data loss or impact on other services.

"T$3 his attack demonstrates the degree to which cybersecurity has become a shared responsibility between tech companies and customers", Smith said in his blog post.
