HEALTH services in Wales have been hit by a series of computer problems this week.

Digital Health and Care Wales, which manages IT for the nation's NHS, confirmed it had been "made aware of network connectivity issues affecting access to some IT services used by a number of NHS Wales organisations, mainly in South Wales".

"The network is delivered by a third party provider and DHCW, in its role as national incident co-ordinator, has been working closely with the provider and the affected organisations to resolve the problem, with most services now back online," the organisation said in a statement.

"We will continue to work with organisations to monitor the situation and with the provider to verify the stability of the network services."

It is understood Cardiff and Vale University Health Board has not been affected by the problems, which caused disruption in the neighbouring Aneurin Bevan University Health Board area.
