NHS Cyber Attack Update Issued on behalf of NHS Bromley Clinical Commissioning Group

Published Tuesday, 16 May 2017

In the wake of the recent cyber-attack which affected many organisations worldwide, NHS Bromley Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), has issued an update.

Bromley Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), the organisation responsible for buying and planning many local healthcare services, has issued an update on the position in Bromley:

“The recent cyber-attack has had very limited impact on health services in Bromley and the CCG is reassuring everyone that all checks of systems have been completed and these are all currently fine. There is no evidence that patient data has been accessed or patient records affected. 

  • All GP practices are running as normal and are being supported to review security of their IT systems 
  • You can continue to make appointments with your GP
  • You should keep your hospital or GP appointment unless told not to go             
  • Please use the NHS wisely and use pharmacists for minor ailments and conditions    
  • Please be patient with NHS staff as computer systems may be running slower than usual at the moment.”

Further information and updates are available on the NHS Bromley Clinical Commissioning Group website.
