Technical update

Due to global IT issues we are currently unable to access our electronic patient record system,  this issue is also affecting GP surgeries and district nurses. We are continuing to operate our services, using our business continuity plans.  As always, patient care and safety remain our absolute priority. We are actively monitoring and managing the situation and will provide updates here when we have them.
