The Princess Alexandra Hospital data breach event looks to be a classic example of an employee misusing their right of access. We have represented many people with similar cases like this, including in other group actions such as the Greater Manchester snooping event that took place a couple of years ago.
Those who take legal action for such an incident are pursuing a medical data breach compensation claim. The GDPR can allow you to recover compensation for any distress that you have suffered from that is caused by the exposure and/or misuse of your private information. Medical data is classed as special category information in accordance with the GDPR, which means that is afforded extra protection. The reason for this is because the law recognises that this information is particularly personal and sensitive, and most people want to maintain strict control over who knows what about their medical data. As such, the level of distress that can be suffered when such information is affected in a data breach can be substantial.
Data breach compensation amounts and pay-outs do reflect the severity of the distress that has been suffered. We usually find that medical data breach compensation claims attract some of the highest awards because of the degree of distress that is caused.
