A Norfolk hospital is yet to restore its systems after a national cyber attack on the NHS - but has told patients to come to their appointments this week.
The James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston was one of those hit by the wide-scale ransomware attack on Friday.
The hospital said it was still relying on its back-up systems, but that patients should come to appointments today and throughout the week unless told otherwise.
Hazel Stuart, deputy medical director, said: 'Where possible we have kept individual patients informed if they were due to come into the hospital and we will continue to do that. We apologise for any disruption this has caused.
'So my message is please come to your appointment on Monday or Tuesday unless you hear from us.
