Two GP practices caught up in a global cyber attack were open as normal today.
Teams have been working at the unnamed North-east surgeries over the weekend to get systems back up and running.
NHS Grampian said it remains “completely confident” no patient data was accessed in the ransomware attack, which hit 13 health boards across the country and countless nationwide, leaving some with a backlog of postponed appointments to contend with.
A spokeswoman for NHS Grampian said: “Our IT teams have been working over the weekend in the affected GP surgeries. There is still no evidence any of our hospital systems were affected and we are completely confident no patient data was involved.
“No ransom was paid by the health board.”
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.
The Scottish Government confirmed there have been no further reported problems following the debilitating cyber attack which hit the NHS on Friday afternoon.
Health Secretary Shona Robison said the concerning incident shows measures to prevent future attacks need to be a priority.
She said: “This has been a global cyber-attack which has impacted on countries across the world and clearly any incident of this nature is hugely concerning – but it’s important to stress there is no evidence to suggest patient data has been compromised.
“This incident emphasises the importance for all of us – the public and private sectors, as well as the general public – to have the appropriate measures in place to protect against these kinds of attack.
“We have taken all necessary steps to ensure the cause and nature of this attack is identified and have managed to isolate the issues within the NHS in Scotland. I would like to thank all of the NHS staff who are working round the clock to rectify this and keep any impact to an absolute minimum. I have complete confidence they will continue to provide the excellent care for which they are famous.”
