GP Cyber Attacks

A spokesperson for NHS West Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) said this morning “The reported cyber attack has had major impact on local health services, within the hospital, walk-in centres and GP practices. Many of our GP practices in West Lancashire have lost access to valuable information and systems they need to run as normal. This means many are seeing urgent patients as a priority and are unable to deliver all of their usual primary care services. Before contacting your GP practice, please consider whether it is urgent or can wait, and whether any service such as pharmacies or 111 can help instead. Patient safety remains our priority, but we would urge our local community in West Lancashire to support GP practices with help and patience during this time”.
