Actually we know a fair bit but Infosec staff are like rare Pokemon within the NHS and are generally ignored.

Wannacry wouldn't have been possible if anyone had listened to use in the YEARS running up to it and I'm not even talking from a patching perspective, ingress routes were highlighted as problems over and over.. but nobody wants to listen to those at the coal face. We're just too damn low in the food chain.

At least until the **** hits the fan, then we're suddenly in demand for a few months until the public forgets about it, then back to minimal resources we go.
