Cambridge University Hospitals is currently experiencing significant issues with its computer network systems – and are asking people not to attend A&E unless “absolutely necessary”.
A spokesman for the trust, which runs Addenbrooke’s and The Rosie, said: “As always, patient safety remains our top priority and ambulances are diverting to alternative regional hospitals.
“The public is asked not to attend A&E unless absolutely necessary. Call NHS 111 for advice, 999 in an emergency.
“Technical experts are working to resolve the problem as soon as possible and staff are working to a well-versed business continuity plan.
“Although emergency surgery continues, elective operations have been cancelled. Outpatients should assume that appointments are going ahead unless advised otherwise by the hospital.”
