Trusts were told about security patch last month — NHS cyberattack

"No NHS Tayside systems or hospital sites were affected by the cyber attack and there was no impact on NHS Tayside's Emergency Departments, outpatient clinics or Out-of-Hours Service".

"As a result, cybercriminals will continue their activity and look for new ways to exploit systems that result in more infections and more money in their accounts", Europol said in a statement.

"All GPs surgeries did open, though some of them had to use pen and paper. It has been a very strong response", she said.

Money has been trickling in, according to a Twitter account monitoring bitcoin wallets linked to the attacks, with victims paying almost $39,000 by Monday afternoon in Asia.

"The public can help us at this busy time by choosing alternatives to A&E, such as pharmacy services and NHS 111, if they have non-life threatening conditions".

The UK government has defended the NHS's cyber-security procedures, days after a number of trusts were taken offline by the WannaCry ransomware.

NHS Grampian said it remains "completely confident" no patient data was accessed in the ransomware attack, which hit 13 health boards across the country and countless nationwide, leaving some with a backlog of postponed appointments to contend with.

On Monday and Tuesday issues still remained and blood tests at the four hospitals are "unavailable until further notice".

NHS Scotland still uses Windows XP, which was released in 2001, on 6500 devices, as well as Windows 2003 and 2007 on others.

"There has been one incident of the ransomware hitting a business here in Australia and there could be two other incidents where it has occurred, although we are trying to confirm that", Mr Tehan told Sky.

The organisation also recommended that trusts ensure security software patches were up-to-date and that up-to-date virus software was also being used.

NHS Digital said health trusts across England were sent details of an IT security patch that would have protected them from the attack.

It is believed that the practice was the only medical service to be affected by the attack in South Gloucestershire, with engineers working through the weekend to restore systems.
