Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust has revealed that its computer systems are back to normal after Friday's cyber-attack.
The Trust runs Ormskirk and District General Hospital, Southport and Formby District General Hospital and provides healthcare in the community to 258,000 people across Southport, Formby and West Lancashire.
Therese Patten, Chief Operating Officer, said:
The Trust staff have been working tirelessly to return computer systems and clinical services back to normal since Friday’s cyber-attack on the NHS.
We reduced the number of planned services earlier in the week to ensure we continued to provide safe care for our patients.
From tomorrow all our services are returning to normal and patients with appointments should now attend as usual. There may, however, be some delays in clinics and we apologise in advance for these.
We will be in contact with patients whose appointments were stood down and, again, our apologies for the disruption caused to your care which was beyond our control.
