Patients have been urged to seek alternatives.

A hospital was forced to close its A&E department due to computer network issues.

Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) trust declared a “major incident” at Addenbrooke’s on Monday afternoon.

Patients were urged to choose alternatives while the A&E was closed and the advice continued after the issue was resolved.

A CUH statement said: “Cambridge University Hospitals can confirm computer network issues have now been resolved.

“However, patients are advised that our Accident and Emergency department is still extremely busy and as a consequence we remain in major incident.

“CUH would like to thank patients and staff for their support during this incident.”
