Formby Village Weekly Market Starts
Service returning to normal following NHS cyber-attack

GP practices following NHS cyber attack

This is a statement issued this morning by NHS Southport and Formby CCG following the cyber attack.

Follow the link below for the full details.

GP practices in Sefton will be open as usual on Monday, but many are still bringing their IT and clinical systems back online following the cyber attack which took place on Friday 12 May 2017 and affected many organisations around the world.  

Some practices will not yet have full access to patient records, prescriptions, appointment systems and in some cases telephone systems. However, all GP practices will be using well tested contingency plans to ensure that services can continue to be provided.  

The NHS is asking patients to continue to use the NHS wisely and remember that they can seek help and advice from a range of other sources, such as pharmacies or 111.
