Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Partnership NHS Trust has cancelled all outpatient and day case appointments at Haywood Hospital today.

It follows Friday's cyber attack which is still causing network problems.

All affected patients will be contacted to rearrange appointments and patients who have urgent care needs will be contacted.

These are extraordinary circumstances and we thank our patients and service users for their patience during this difficult time.

We are working hard to ensure all services will resume to normal as quickly and safely as possible.

– Kieron Murphy, Director of Operations and Acting Chief Executive
