Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust: National cyber attack update

Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has confirmed the infected systems have been restored and with no loss of data.

The Trust said in a statement released today: “We can confirm that the radiology services affected by the national cyber-attack at Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital have been restored. There was no data loss or impact on other services.

“Staff worked very hard over the weekend to minimise the impact on patients and as a result there have been few cancelled appointments. Patients with an appointment should attend as normal, unless specifically contacted by the hospital.

“The walk in x-ray service at Basingstoke hospital will remain closed for patients referred by their GP for the rest of the day. Patients can attend Royal Hampshire County Hospital, Andover War Memorial Hospital or Alton Community Hospital as an alternative. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”

“Our priority has been to restore our radiology services, and like other Trusts affected working with NHS Digital, we will continue to do all we can to protect our systems for the future.”
