NHS Lanarkshire along with other Boards across the UK is currently experiencing a ransom ware attack to its IT network.

IT specialists are working to resolve the matter as quickly as possible.

As a precaution NHS Lanarkshire is closing down its non-essential, networked IT systems on a temporary basis.

Members of the public should stay away from Lanarkshire A&Es at this time unless it is a genuine emergency needing immediate treatment.
