Firstly, thank you for bearing with us, the last 6 days have been truly testing.
Across, the whole of GPS, we lost about 50 computers to the Cyber attack on the 12/5/17.
We worked closely with our IT support and have been able to a basic IT system up and running. Each site now has several computers working. We are, however, still at a restricted operating capacity. We have limited access to some results and some of our secretarial IT systems remain closed.
We continue to work closely with IT and we hope to have a fully up and running IT system within the next few days/weeks.
We continue to be able to see emergency appointments but are now in a better position to see routine patients.
Thank you for your continuing support and understanding. For more information, visit GPSHealthcare.co.uk or follow us on twitter @GPS_Healthcare
URGENT PATIENT MESSAGE
All GPS Healthcare sites have fallen victim to the recent NHS cyber attack, as have at least 50% of Solihull practices. This number is likely to increase over the upcoming days.
We have VERY LIMITED ability to access patient records, data and files. At best, each site has only 2 or 3 functioning computers. As best as we know, patient records have not been compromised.
We are working round the clock to get a long term sustainable solution for this problem, but we do ask patients bear with us at this most testing time. We respectfully ask that if your appointment is not urgent, that you cancel and rebook for a later date.
ALL SITES ARE STILL OPEN AND ABLE TO SEE EMERGENCY PATIENTS. Please contact receptions as normal to get an appointment.
For more information, please speak to our reception team, visit our website (www.gpshealthcare.co.uk) or follow us on twitter (@GPS_Healthcare)
