The ransomware attack on the HSE IT systems is having considerable impact on hospital services in Sligo University Hospital today.
In general terms outpatient appointments, chemotherapy treatments, maternity appointments and dialysis treatments are continuing and patients should attend their appointments. Where appointments are cancelled, patients are contacted directly.
All outpatient x-ray, CT and MRI appointments are cancelled today. Ophthalmic outpatient appointments and procedures have been cancelled.
Patients can expect delays in all clinics and in the Emergency Department today as existing IT systems are not in use and the manual workarounds are time consuming.
We would like to thank our patients for their understanding at this difficult time.
