Global IT Outage Update

Every day we care for and treat hundreds of patients from Greater Manchester and beyond who come through our doors.

 

Today's global IT outage affected many organisations including ours but to put it into context, this outage affected less than a third of our patients.

 

Our staff worked tirelessly to deliver as many chemotherapy and immunotherapy treatments as possible and continue to finalise plans for those we were unable to see today due to issues affecting our supplier.

 

Thank you for being understanding and bearing with us. Unless our teams contact you, please attend for your appointment as planned.

 

We continue to work with our supplier to resolve this issue and prioritise our most clinically urgent patients. We apologise for any delays that have occurred as a result of this.

 

Any further updates will be published on our website and social media channels (Facebook and X/Twitter)
