We have been contacted for help as a result of the Charing Cross Gender Identity Clinic email leak that has reportedly affected almost 2,000 people.
We understand that two separate emails relating to an art competition were sent by the patient and public involvement team, with around 900 individuals CC’d into each email. This is a clear breach of the victims’ rights to privacy, and we will be taking action for anyone who has been affected.
As lawyers who are fighting for justice for victims of the 56 Dean Street Clinic leak, with tens of thousands of pounds in damages already recovered, we are committed to helping anyone who has been affected by this latest email leak.
The Charing Cross Gender Identity Clinic email leak has exposed the information for almost 2,000 people. This appears to be yet another case where an email has been sent which has CC’d the information in for other recipients, leading to a severe data protection breach.
It’s understood that the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust who are responsible for the Charing Cross Clinic are investigating the incident.
In response to the data breach, the Trust has said:
“Unfortunately, due to an error, the email addresses of some of those we are inviting to participate were not hidden and therefore visible to all. We can confirm we are reporting this breach to the Information Commissioner’s Office as well as treating it as a serious incident within the Trust.”
For some, the impact of the Charing Cross Gender Identity Clinic email leak could be substantial, as we have seen from similar leaks like the 56 Dean Street Clinic event we are helping people with.
There are those who prefer their identity to remain confidential, particularly due to concerns over the perceived stigma of gender identity. Victims who suffer understandable distress as a result of this incident are entitled to justice, and we’re committed to helping anyone who comes forward for our help.
Data breach compensation amounts in email leaks of this nature can be substantial.
This type of leak is easily preventable with proper systems and procedures in place, or better yet, through the use of professional email campaign technology which is readily available. For that reason, and with the law on the victims’ side, we consider there are grounds for victims to be able to pursue a claim for data breach compensation.
We’re happy to offer our free, no-obligation legal advice for anyone affected by the email leak from the Charing Cross Clinic. We have already been contacted for help and we are prepared to offer No Win, No Fee representation for those who we represent.
