NHS cybersecurity and the rights for data breach victims

medical data breaches

When we look at important topics such as NHS cybersecurity, we usually approach it from the perspective of the victims, given that we’re data breach compensation lawyers.

GDPR ensures that there’s an important duty on all organisations – including the NHS – to take steps to protect the data that they store and process. Their duties are clear, and the punishments that can be issued by the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office) are also clear, and they can be substantial.

But what about the victims? What can they do when it’s their data that has been exposed or misused? What are their rights?

Greater Manchester NHS patients compensation for improper medical records access

medical data

If you’re one of the 2,000 or so Greater Manchester NHS patients whose medical records have been accessed inappropriately, you may be entitled to make a claim for NHS data breach compensation.

The Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust has written to patients affected by this scandal. An investigation that followed a complaint revealed that thousands of people’s medical records had been accessed by a number of NHS employees without need or authority to do so.

Across an 18-month period, some records had been subject to a single access event, whereas others had been accessed on a number of occasions. It’s yet to be confirmed which staff are responsible for the access events as well.

Charing Cross Gender Identity Clinic email leak

email address breaches can you claim for compensation

We’re taking compensation claims forward on a No Win, No Fee basis for victims of the Charing Cross Gender Identity Clinic email leak.

The GIC sent two separate emails to groups of around 900 individuals per email with information relating to an art competition. Unfortunately, instead of using proper mailing software, it appears that the clinic simply used the “CC” (carbon copy) function. This has resulted in recipients’ information – at least email addresses, and possibly names – being leaked to all other recipients of the email.

This isn’t the first time an email data leak of this nature has happened. We continue to fight for the rights of victims affected by the infamous 56 Dean Street Clinic leak which was a similar incident.
