Information on the Synnovis cyber attack

Posted by: Monifa - Posted on:

On Monday 3 June Synnovis, a provider of lab services, was the victim of a ransomware cyber attack. This is having a significant impact on the delivery of services at Guy’s and St Thomas’, King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trusts and primary care services in south east London and we apologise for the inconvenience this is causing to patients and their families.

Emergency care continues to be available, so patients should access services in the normal way by dialling 999 in an emergency and otherwise using 111, and patients should continue to attend appointments unless they are told otherwise.

For further updates, please see the ICB website which will be updated as the situation develops.

All testing barring urgent blood tests have been halted at present! – we will update this as we receive any new developments.
