Hospital IT issues (06 March 2018 at 12:50)

06 March 2018
Cambridge University Hospitals is currently experiencing significant issues with its computer network systems.

As always, patient safety remains our top priority and ambulances are diverting to alternative regional hospitals.

The public is asked not to attend A&E unless absolutely necessary. Call NHS 111 for advice, 999 in an emergency.

Technical experts are working to resolve the problem as soon as possible and staff are working to a well-versed business continuity plan.

Although emergency surgery continues, elective operations have been cancelled. Outpatients should assume that appointments are going ahead unless advised otherwise by the hospital.

Alternatives to A&E can be found on the Choose Well website.
