Your maternity care will be at St Thomas' Hospital and in our community hubs in south east London.

Please use our services as normal

You might have been asked to change your blood test arrangements following a cyber attack affecting our pathology service provider, Synnovis

We want to reassure you that all our services are running and we are able to prioritise your care, including if you are in labour and any urgent care. Please:

  • attend all your appointments as planned
  • go to the hospital for a caesarean section or your procedure, as planned
  • speak to your midwife or the team if you have concerns about your care

You might experience slightly longer waiting times but our teams are working hard to minimise this.
