Great Ormond Street hospital remains offline!

 
 

The massively famous Great Ormond Street children’s hospital was taken offline as a safety precaution during the Wannacry attacks last weekend. The hospital wasn’t hit by ransomware during the attacks, but has quarantined the network.

This has left members of staff without access to emails or general internet access. The staff can only make calls externally at the moment as their internal phone system is temporarily unavailable. The hospital and staff have stressed that their patients are still receiving the care and attention that they need.
