A manual log will be maintained till the system is restored.

A spokesman for NHS Connecting for Health said "This incident was caused by storage area network equipment failure and has affected several other organizations. Technical issues following power system interruptions mean that data held on computers in the central data centre for the region cannot be accessed. The nature of the incident meant that service could not immediately be provided by the back-up systems. No data has been lost."
