The Gelre hospitals in Apeldoorn and Zutphen had to cancel a number of surgeries and treatments due to a computer failure. Some outpatient clinics are also affected, De Stentor reports.

The computer system in question does have a backup, but patient data on the backup files can only be viewed, not changed. It is for that reason the hospitals decided to cancel a number of surgeries and treatments. "After surgery we can not pass on internal data. We don't want to take any risks with that", spokesperson Tom Schooltink said to the newspaper.
