Patients to be aware of system downtime

Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Trust's Patient Administration System (PAS) will be taken offline this weekend.

The system has been in use across the Trust for over 30 years, and as such, has limited support by the system provider and continues to have bouts of unplanned failure. 

In order to mitigate this risk and improve system performance, the Trust needs to upgrade the servers that support the current system.  This will also provide an enhanced user interface.

The upgrade will require PAS to be taken offline for 27 hours – from 9am on Saturday 11th November until 12noon on Sunday 12th November. During this time, patients are reminded that this may cause delays in being seen in some areas so please only attend the hospital if the case is urgent or life-threatening.
