    Uhuh.
    Now why haven't I had such a thing? I've never allowed the updates.

    Can't believe an organisation like the UK Health would have such a half ass IT dept.
    Really? The have no backups?

    As for me, should I ever get this, who cares?

    Wow, that's appalling, especially when you consider lives are at stake.

    Wonder what our Health system runs on? Considering I will be on the operating table this Wed I have an interest in this!

    It's not the point.

    Having disaster recovery in place is the point. If they can't do it themselves there are plenty of 3rd party places that do this.
