Cyberattack Update: 21 June 2024

Friday, 21 June, 2024

“On 3 June, Synnovis – a pathology services partnership between two London-based hospital Trusts and SYNLAB – was the victim of a cyberattack. Last night a group claiming responsibility for the cyberattack published data online that they allege belongs to Synnovis.

“We know how worrying this development may be for many people. An analysis of this data is already underway. This analysis, run in conjunction with the NHS, the National Cyber Security Centre and other partners, aims to confirm whether the data was taken from Synnovis’ systems and what information it contains.

“We will keep our service users, employees and partners updated as the investigation progresses.”

Notes to editors:
