The attacks affected 150 countries and infected at least 200,000 computers worldwide, despite global cyber security firms warning last month that they were expected.

Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, NHS Blackpool Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS Fylde and Wyre CCG are still experiencing IT problems. "We need the tech sector, customers and governments to work together to protect against cybersecurity attacks".

The UK government called a meeting of its crisis response committee, known as Cobra, to discuss how to handle the situation.

The WannaCry or WannaCrypt ransomware attack deployed a Windows exploit that the National Security Agency had used for its own purposes until it was leaked in April by the hacking group Shadow Brokers.

Cyber security experts have warned that the ransomware virus, which affected one in five NHS trusts, could be reactivated by computers and devices that have not yet been switched on. "Which we will", she said.

"The way these attacks work means that compromises of machines and networks that have already occurred may not yet have been detected, and that existing infections from the malware can spread within networks", Britain's National Cyber Security Center said Sunday.

Eleven health boards as well as NHS National Services and the Scottish Ambulance Service were affected in the unprecedented cyber attack which hit scores of countries on Friday.

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt confirmed there has not been a second wave of cyber attacks on NHS trusts.

Riverbank IT Management managing director Malcolm Newdick said: "Last week's ransomware attack was the most risky malware attack we have seen".

He had previously asked that patients other than those with emergencies avoid going to the surgery until Tuesday.

A divert remains in place for trauma, stroke and urgent heart attack treatment, where diagnostic services are required, at the Lister Hospital, part of East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust (Midlands & East).

Security firms are encouraging companies and users to make sure they install the official patch from Microsoft.

The health service has been rebuked for using the outdated Windows XP operating system to store digital information, despite security updates for the software having been discontinued by Microsoft.

"As a result of the attack, we will be reviewing and further strengthening our system protection arrangements", the spokesperson said.
