Response to The Cyber-attack on HSE IT Systems by The National Maternity Hospital

By nmhadmin, Thursday, 20th May 2021 | 0 comments

The HSE IT systems have been subject to a cyber-attack. Despite this, we have continued to provide a full clinical service to our patients.

The hospital has lost access to our IPMS (Inpatient Management System) and our MNCMS (Electronic Patient Record System for both maternity and neonatal).

We would like to thank all our staff for their incredible work. As a fully digitalised hospital, their commitment to our patients enabled us to swiftly revert to a paper based system. We will continue to use this with retrospective insertion of data to electronic records at a later date.

Outpatient and gynaecology appointments and services are going ahead as scheduled.

You may experience some delays. We ask you to please be patient with our staff as they do their utmost to adjust to a paper based system.

Please bring your most recent appointment letter or appointment card with you, your hospital number and any other documentation you have that is relevant to your care.

Phone consultations for gynaecology have been temporarily cancelled and will be rescheduled for a later date.


If you are due to have a physiotherapy telephone consultation anytime up to the 28th May, please email with your full name, hospital number, date of birth and contact telephone number.

Please also include date and time of your scheduled call.
