Disruption to NHS services across the UK

**Update: Sat 13 May 2017 – 8am**
Dear Patients,

Please note that our services have resumed with some continued disruption to our NHS email which may impact patient referrals in and out of our service, however we expect this to return to normal by early next week.

Thank you for your continued patience.


Dear Patients, NHS England has advised us to shutdown our PCs and telephones in response to a major cyber attack on NHS services across the UK.

This has resulted in serious disruption to our service. If you have urgent medical needs that cannot wait till the issue is resolved, please call 111.

If you have a medical emergency, please call 999 or visit your nearest A&E.

We will update further when we know more and thank you for your patience.
