UK's NHS has 'pretty good procedures' for dealing with cyber attacks

He added: "Where we need to cancel planned appointments, we will be contacting patients directly to make them aware and we apologise for any inconvenience caused".

Mr Turnbull's cyber security advisor, Alastair MacGibbon, said none of Australia's government agencies or health systems had been hit.

Accident and emergency units in England were almost back to normal yesterday, the National Health Service (NHS) said, after the last restrictions put in place following the global cyber attack were lifted.

"The governments of the world should treat this attack as a wake up call", Microsoft's president and chief legal officer, Brad Smith, wrote in a blog post about what is being called the largest ransomware attack ever.

He added that the USA government does not recommend paying the ransom and warned that making a payment to the hackers doesn't guarantee that access to computer files will be restored.

As of now, as much as 200,000 users from more than 150 countries have come under the cyber attack which started spreading across the globe over the weekend.

Services are returning to normal, but some places are still having problems. "It was clear warnings were given to hospital trusts but this is not something that focused on attacking the NHS here on the United Kingdom".

Britain's biggest health trust, Barts Health NHS Trust, which runs five hospitals in London, said Monday it was continuing to experience some delays and disruption to services.

In a statement it said: "East Kent Hospitals unaffected by yesterday's cyber attack".

It is understood the number of systems affected at each of the Scottish health boards fell into single figures - bar NHS Lanarkshire where more machines were affected.

"Our pro-active routine maintenance and planned security and anti-virus update programme, coupled with the county-wide Internet Security Filter has protected us".

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

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.
