Meltdown at the doctors.

Patients are being urged to stay away from GPs amid fears of a “Monday morning meltdown” as a result of the global cyber attacks.

So there you have it, you walk into a doctors today and you’ll have a meltdown.
I wonder what fools write these headlines.

There again if some doctor’s receptionist told me I wasn’t allowed to see a doctor as they were afraid to use a biro and write notes on paper as a temporary measure, then you’d see one hell of a meltdown.

Here’s a thought to really upset you though.
Microcrap are blaming you for not upgrading their software to Windows 10.
Who in their right mind would want to install the very product that was so badly written to allow this to happen in the first place?

Anyway, the newest of wrinkles with this story is this:-
NHS England hospital trusts were sent details of a security patch last month that would have prevented Friday’s malware attack. NHS Digital has confirmed to Sky News that the patch was made available on its cyber portal on 25 April, and a link sent to NHS IT staff on 27 April. A spokesman said: “Our understanding is that if that had been acted on it would have prevented (the malware attack).”

Oh boy, time for a major head rolling I’m thinking.
The heads of all the bosses of the Trusts who didn’t follow up on this critical update comes to mind, them and the fat cat bosses of the GP surgeries who decided to play golf today.

  1. Only way to prevent these cyber attacks to systems we value, such as our election System or our medical systems, is to simply not use computers, or at least not computers that are hooked in anyway to the Internet. We don’t need computers to live, although I realize that many in the younger generation Will find that difficult to believe. We have in the past run our elections and kept our medical records without the assistance of any computers. Paper works quite well for compiling and keeping permanent records. Simple, no?
