About the Deerbrook Surgery data breach

Although this incident reportedly did not involve medical information, it is common for medical data breach compensation claims to be serious. Medical information is precisely the kind of data that we want to remain private and confidential, so its misuse or exposure can cause severe distress for those affected. This is why cases like this can often attract high data breach compensation pay-outs, but it does all depend on the nature of the information affected and how you have been personally impacted.
