You could be eligible to receive compensation if you have been affected by an NHS Trust data breach that has resulted in the misuse and/or exposure of your personal information.
Medical data is some of the most personal and sensitive that there can be, and this is why it is afforded special protection from the GDPR. Understandably, we do not want people to generally know this kind of information about us, and we expect privacy in that regard. If such privacy is breached, it can cause considerable distress where you lose control over who knows what about you.
The GDPR can entitle you to claim compensation for any distress that has been caused by the loss of control of your personal medical information. We represent thousands of people in data breach compensation cases, with many of those being for breaches, leaks and hacks involving medical details.
Compensation pay-outs and amounts for cases like this can be substantial, and we have recovered over £1m in damages so far for clients in mainly singular privacy matters. We are usually happy to represent people on a No Win, No Fee basis for a case like this given the impact that the breach can have.
We offer free, no-obligation advice to anyone who needs it, and you can contact the team here now.
Plenty must be done to prevent an NHS Trust data breach from occurring, given the sensitivity of the information that can be involved. This is why the UK’s data watchdog, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), is here to audit and punish data offenders. It is vital that their work serves to act as a deterrent as well as being an enforcer if something goes wrong.
The ICO regularly conducts audits. A recent one was conducted in relation to Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, which did identify some scope for improvement. In the areas looked at in relation to “Governance & Accountability” and “Data Sharing”, the ICO issued an assurance rating of “reasonable”. This is defined as:
“There is a reasonable level of assurance that processes and procedures are in place and are delivering data protection compliance. The audit has identified some scope for improvement in existing arrangements to reduce the risk of non-compliance with data protection legislation.”
You could be eligible to claim NHS data protection compensation if you have suffered as a result of your personal information being misused and/or exposed.
