16 Nov 2017

In an interview with The Telegraph, BLM healthcare partner, Greg McEwen discusses new technology emerging in the sector coupled with its risks and benefits.

Speaking about recent headline grabbing issues, Greg said: "In May this year, the NHS was hit by the WannaCry cyber attack, which paralysed trusts across Britain using hacking tools believed to have been developed as a “cyber weapon”.

"No patient data was leaked in the attack, and affected computers were back online within days. But the attack highlighted the very real risks faced by hospitals."
