London hospitals have been forced to cancel over 800 operations in a single week following a crippling ransomware attack on June 3rd.

The National Health Service (NHS) has finally revealed the full extent of the damage, which extends far beyond the canceled surgeries. Over 800 outpatient appointments were also disrupted, and a staggering 18 organ transplants had to be diverted to other facilities.

Hospital executives have acknowledged the severity of the situation, stating, “The cyber-attack has had a significant impact on our services, and this is likely to remain the case for some time yet.”

The attack targeted the pathology services provider Synnovis, which serves six London boroughs, significantly reducing the number of blood tests that can be processed and reported.

While the immediate impact of the attack is clear, the long-term consequences remain to be seen. Recovery efforts are underway, but it is expected to take months before hospitals can fully restore normal operations.
