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".

It was feared that NHS workers returning after the weekend would experience another spike in attacks as the malicious software could have infected more computers since Friday.

The recent global cyber attack has affected more than 200,000 people - so should you be anxious about your own online security?

In its latest update on the incident, Europol said it was the "largest ransomware attack observed in history".
