Major IT crash causes 'critical incident'22nd September 2016
A major IT fault at Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust has left it unable to report pathology tests for nearly a week.
The hardware failure caused the collapse of the trust’s Telepath pathology system, which has remained offline despite efforts to recover it.
The trust has been forced to declare a "critical" internal incident – the second highest level below "potential service failure" - because of the crash.
Emergency services such as major trauma and critical care are being prioritised but there is no indication of when the system will be running again.
