Could Have Been Avoided
The Victorian State Government should have done more to prevent last weeks cyber attack on local hospitals across the region according to a local MP.
Member for South West Coast Roma Britnell says the chaos and disruption to Warrnambool's South West Healthcare, other regional hospitals, and Barwon Health could have been avoided.
Ms Britnell says the auditor general noted in May that Victoria's health systems were at risk of cyber security attacks.
She says the State Government gave a paltry amount of money to address it which amounted to almost nothing.
