Cybersecurity Incident at Synnovis in UK

SYNLAB AG (“SYNLAB”, FSE: SYAB) confirms that Synnovis, a partnership between two London-based hospital Trusts and SYNLAB UK & Ireland, was the victim of a cyber-attack on 3 June 2024.

A taskforce of IT experts from Synnovis and the National Health Service in UK (NHS England) is working diligently to fully assess the impact the attack has had, and to take the appropriate action needed. Synnovis is working closely with NHS Trust partners to minimise the impact on patients and other service users.

It is an isolated incident to Synnovis with no connection to the cyber-attack on SYNLAB Italy on 18 April 2024. The rest of the SYNLAB Group including the other SYNLAB facilities in the UK are not impacted.

Regrettably this is affecting patients, with some activity already cancelled or redirected to other providers as urgent work is prioritised. Synnovis is working under high pressure to minimise the impact and update patients and partners on further developments.

SYNLAB and Synnovis apologize for the impact resulting from this criminal attack.
