Technical problem affecting access to patient records

The Trust is experiencing issues accessing our usual electronic patient record systems and, as a result, there may be delays in responding to you, your complaint or concerns. Due to these difficulties we may need to ask you to confirm or retell information that you have previously provided to us.

We continue to provide services and support to people who use our services and are able to maintain current records using secure alternative systems. We are working closely with the software provider and other NHS and care organisations affected and are making progress towards our usual system being available again as quickly and as safely as possible.

The supplier has commissioned an external specialist company to investigate the incident, who found no evidence that any data has been lost or taken. We are reassured by their assessment that patient records have been kept safe.

If you have any concerns, please do speak to the person working with you. Thank you for your understanding and patience during this period.
