Summary
A ransomware cyberattack has disrupted the operations at two major London hospital trusts, Guy's and St Thomas' and King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, as well as GP services in South London. The attack has forced the cancellation of all non-emergency operations and blood tests, impacting tens of thousands of patients. Pathology provider Synnovis, which serves multiple hospitals in the area, confirmed the incident, leading to significant delays and operational challenges. The National Cyber Security Centre and NHS England have declared a level three incident and are working to resolve the issue, which may take weeks or months. Emergency care services remain unaffected.
