South Staffordshire and Shropshire NHS Foundation Trust were affected by the recent cyber-attack. We think our health informatics service detected the issues at the early stage and shut down relevant systems rapidly. We practice for these type of eventualities on a regular basis and were able to quickly initiate our business continuity process, under our silver command lead. We are now gradually introducing IT services and monitoring performance. Service users are advised that our normal numbers for crisis and home treatment are in operation, so there should not be an issue of contacting our clinical staff. Appointment schedules are running as normal so please attend any appointments unless you have been notified otherwise. Finally we must pay tribute to our Information Technology and Health Informatic support staff, who have been nothing short of outstanding in responding to this crisis.
