A spokesperson said: "Our IT teams were in over the weekend making sure our systems were robust enough to protect against a possible infection, and our firewall was up to date to prevent such a problem".

Britain's official emergency committee, known as Cobra, met in London on Saturday afternoon to discuss the cyber-attack that has caused widespread disruption to the country's National Health Service (NHS).

Last night, she said: "The concern is that on Monday morning the appointment system may not be working, some places may not be able to access routine results, even the phone lines in some cases may not be working".

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