The Register’s exclusive about Google and the NHS makes national headlines

Situation Publishing journalist Kat Hall uncovered that Google was blocking access to the entire NHS network, mistaking the amount of traffic it received as a cyber attack.

Situation Publishing’s technology news outlet The Register broke a story on Wednesday that an NHS trust’s IT department had sent an email internally that stated traffic from NHS Trusts Nationally was causing Google to think it was suffering from a cyber-attack. The IT department had advised NHS staff to use Bing instead.

This exclusive story was picked up by multiple national news publications including the BBC, the Telegraph and Sky News.
