Melbourne Health is managing a computer virus which infected its computer network. 

While the virus has been disruptive to the organisation, due to the tireless work of staff we have been able to minimise this disruption to our patients and ensure patient safety has been maintained.

Computers running on most of our systems are now clear of the virus and IT staff are working to restore the remaining Windows XP computers as quickly as possible.

As of 10am this morning, many programs affected by the virus are up and running including pathology and pharmacy.
