The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) is investigating a cybersecurity incident on its Internet network.

A number of areas appears to have been affected, and as a result, there will be disruptions and delays in services, the duration of which is unknown at this time.

The Ambulance Service continues to operate as normal and the Blood Collecting Centre also welcomes blood donations, the QEH said in a release.

The hospital’s IT Department, in conjunction with the Ministry of Innovation and Smart Technology and cyber security experts are currently working on the situation.

The hospital said it was “taking all necessary precautions to protect the integrity of our systems and patient privacy”.

The QEH apologised for the inconvenience. (PRSAT)
