Thousands of patients could have their appointments cancelled as a result of a ransomware attack on the HSE's IT systems.

Dr. Denis McCauley, Chair of the IMO GP Committee and a Donegal GP, told us how it will impact routine diagnostic tests, as well as Covid-19 testing and vaccinations.

We also heard from Dr. Angie Brown, Medical Director with the Irish Heart Foundation and Consultant cardiologist, explained how it will impact cardiology patients.

And, pharmacies look set to be impacted as well. To find out how we spoke to Darragh O’Loughlin, General Secretary of the Irish Pharmacy Union.
