Special category data compensation claims

Special category data is personal information that is afforded particular protection in accordance with the GDPR because of the nature of what it is.

The law recognises that you have the right to control who knows what about you, and it also recognises that certain information requires particular attention and control. This is the type of information that is often categorised as “special category”, and the need to protect it is vital.

NHS data breach between 2018 and 2019

Tavistock & Portman NHS Foundation Trust ICO fine

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has issued a fine in the sum of £78,400 for a data breach involving the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust.

This particular breach that involves a Gender Identity Clinic service is one we are already more than familiar with as we are representing people who were affected by the incident. Particularly personal and sensitive information has been leaked as a result of this email breach, so we are not surprised to see that regulatory action has also taken place.

Any ICO fine is a completely separate matter to those who are pursuing private compensation claims with us on a No Win, No Fee basis. We are coming close to the three-year anniversary of when the breach took place, which means that certain time-frames to join this action are coming to a close soon. You should speak to us as soon as possible if you have yet to claim as a victim of this incident.
