Major cyber attack at NHS London hospitals in critical incident with operations cancelled

Two London hospital trusts have been forced to cancel all non-emergency operations and blood tests following a “major” cyber attack.

Pathology systems at Kings College Hospital Foundation Trust and Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals Foundation Trusts and GP services across South London, have been hit by a ransomware attack, according to emails seen by The Independent.

ynnovis is the supplier of blood tests, swabs, bowel tests and other services for hospitals serving NHS patients across six London boroughs.

The supplier covers Guy’s Hospital, which runs children’s hospital the Evelina, Harefield Hospital, King’s College Hospital, Princess Royal University Hospital, Royal Brompton Hospital and St Thomas’ Hospital.

Synnovis warned the NHS trusts on Monday that it had been hit by a major malware attack, impacting tens of thousands of patients, according to sources close to the hospitals.

In a second email on Tuesday, seen by The Independent, it confirmed it has been hit by a ransomware attack.

GPs have been told to cancel all non-emergency pathology appointments, while hospital staff have been told to request emergency blood samples only for patients who require transfusions.

The National Cyber Security Center is now involved, while NHS England has declared a level three incident – the second highest alert level.
