NHS Trust data protection is incredibly important to get right to make sure that people’s information and right to privacy is protected and respected.

Claiming NHS data protection breach compensation is about the recovery of damages for the loss of control of your personal information in a public sector medical environment. This could occur through your information being disclosed or shared – or even viewed – without your consent, or without proper and appropriate authority to do so. A breach can also arise from your information being leaked or exposed by accident.
Ultimately, you have the right to control who knows what about you. This is particularly important when it comes to medical information. If your right to privacy has been breached, this can cause significant distress due to the loss of control of your personal information. The GDPR can entitle you to claim compensation for such distress, and we may be able to represent you for a claim on a No Win, No Fee basis.

The importance of NHS Trust data protection cannot be understated. This is why the UK’s data regulator, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), regularly conducts audits and investigations to assess information compliance. Their work in this regard is vital to make sure that any issues are promptly addressed, and to make sure that people’s information is protected and their right to privacy is respected.
This particular audit summary concluded that, in the area of requests for access, the Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust scored a rating of “reasonable”. The audit report confirmed that this means that the processes and procedures in place are complying with data protection legislation, but the audit did identify areas for potential improvements.
Whilst it is good to see that the headline seems to be that compliance is reasonable for the Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust, where improvements need to be made, there should be considerable focus on ensuring that this takes place.
You could be eligible to claim compensation for events such as hospital ransomware attacks as well. You could be eligible to claim for any NHS trust data protection failures that have directly contributed to the occurrence of the attack.
In many cases, this is the failure to properly and adequately secure information. If more could – and should – have been done to protect your personal information, that is when you could be eligible to pursue a claim for data breach compensation.
