Local Trust encourages patients to attend appointments

Thursday, May 18, 2017

Southport & Ormskirk Hospitals NHS Trust issued the following statement on Wednesday 17 May 2017 about recent progress towards resuming normal services following last week's NHS cyber attack.

Therese Patten, Chief Operating Officer, said: “Trust staff have been working tirelessly to return computer systems and clinical services back to normal since Friday’s cyber-attack on the NHS.

“We reduced the number of planned services earlier in the week to ensure we continued to provide safe care for our patients.

“From tomorrow (Thursday) all our services are returning to normal and patients with appointments should now attend as usual. There may, however, be some delays in clinics and we apologise in advance for these.

“We will be in contact with patients whose appointments were stood down and, again, our apologies for the disruption caused to your care which was beyond our control.”
