NHS systems are down across Cornwall

Pirate FM understands that NHS IT systems have gone down across Cornwall.

Computer systems and phone lines experienced an outage at some GP surgeries and community hospitals.

Different sites use different systems, so it is not currently known how many were affected on Monday afternoon.

At the time, Cornwall IT Services says it was working to fix the problem as a 'matter of urgency'.

It has now been confirmed that the issue has been resolved.

"There has been an outage to the NHS network.

"The supplier is working on the problem as a matter of urgency.

"Treliske has a main internal system which it is working off.

"We are trying along with the help desk to resolve the situation."

Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust says it is waiting to hear from BT to find out what exactly caused the problem.
