Weston Area Health NHS Trust has declared an internal critical incident due to failure of IT servers in the early hours of this morning. Patient care is not affected or compromised, but there are likely to be delays in support services.
The Trust has cancelled non-urgent surgery this
morning and is asking the public to only attend the hospital today for
scheduled appointments or in an emergency. If you have suffered a minor injury, please visit units in Clevedon or Bridgewater.
We’re sorry for the inconvenience this may cause today, and
please be assured that all affected patients will be contacted by the hospital;
to rearrange their appointments as soon as possible.
The failure occurred at 3am this morning, and engineers are on site to rectify the problem. Weston General is doing everything it can to get systems back online as soon as possible and thanks the public and partners for their understanding at this time.
