We are currently dealing with a suspected cyber attack,and have shut down a number of our systems as a precaution.
We have implemented our contingency plans and we continue to provide services in A&E and essential services elsewhere. We do ask that patients only use A&E in an emergency and to call NHS 111 for urgent advice and guidance.
In order to ensure we maintain quality and patient safety, we have had to cancel a number of outpatient appointments, and are operating a limited radiology service.
We apologise to those patients affected and we are working hard to resolve the issues as soon as possible.
