'Cyberattack hit 'one in five' NHS England trusts, says Amber Rudd




Rudd says NHS was prepared for cyberattack
All A&Es are back up and running after a cyberattack hit almost one in five NHS England trusts, Amber Rudd has confirmed.

Speaking after an emergency COBRA meeting, the Home Secretary confirmed that of the 248 NHS England trusts, 48 had been affected.
She said all but six trusts were now running as normal after experts had been working "around the clock" to restore systems.
"I'd like to commend the work that NHS staff have done to ensure the hospitals and patient surgeries continue to run smoothly," said Ms Rudd.
"In fact, 97% of the NHS trusts and hospitals... are working as normal."

NHS trusts have come under fire for failing to stop using outdated software that left them at risk.
