Systems back up and running at Cambridge University Hospitals following IT disruption
[London, UK] Systems at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust are now back up and running following significant issues with its computer network.
Elective operations were cancelled and ambulances were diverted to regional hospitals as experts tried to solve the issue.
The public was asked not to attend A&E unless absolutely necessary.
“The computer network system at Cambridge University Hospitals is back up and running, although the trust continues to work closely with its suppliers to monitor the situation," said a spokesperson for the trust.
Yesterday (5 March), the trust had to shut down the A&E department at Addenbrooke’s for more than an hour after declaring a major incident due to IT issues.
