CervicalCheck update 21.12.21 – Recent cyber attack on the Coombe Women and Infants University Hospital

(21 Dec 2021)

There was a cyber attack on the Coombe Women and University Hospital on 16 December, 2021. The Coombe is one of the laboratories that processes CervicalCheck samples.

We are working closely with the Coombe and our US laboratory to limit the impact of the attack on the processing of screening samples.

Some people may have a short delay in receiving their cervical screening results.

Because cervical cancer develops over a period of 10-15 years, a short delay in receiving your result is unlikely to affect your outcome.

We are contacting all sample takers who send samples to the Coombe with follow-up information.

The Coombe will return to processing samples as soon as possible.
