NHS services across England have been hit by IT failure, believed to be caused by a large-scale cyber attack.

Trusts and hospitals in London, Blackburn, Nottingham, Cumbria and Hertfordshire have been affected.

GPs are resorting to using pen and paper, according to newspaper the Blackpool Gazette, and phone and IT systems have been shut down.  NHS England says they are aware of the issue and are looking into it.
