England and Scotland NHS services were hit by a cyber attack that brought chaos to GPs and hospitals.
The attack was not aimed at the NHS but was part of a wider attack, which affected organisations across the world.
But as a result, doctors were unable to access patient data and resorted to using paper and pen as a ransomware program demanded £230 to unlock their computers.
So far, no patient data has been reported as being compromised.
However, ambulances had to be diverted to unaffected hospitals and appointments cancelled due to the malware.
The hackers demanded payment by Bitcoin, the virtual currency, which can be difficult to trace.
