About the Deerbrook Surgery data breach

What we know so far about the Deerbrook Surgery data breach is that it involved the personal and private details of patients being accidentally shared with third parties. Data involved in the breach included names, gender details and dates of birth.

It is currently understood that no clinical data was involved.

The surgery acknowledged that this was a “serious error” and they have confirmed that steps have been taken to prevent this kind of incident from taking place again. They have requested that the recipients of the exposed information delete the data that they have received.

As part of an update in relation to the data breach, the surgery issued an apology to all those affected.

What can you do as a victim of this data breach?

If you have been informed that your personal information was exposed as part of the Deerbrook Surgery data breach, you could be eligible to claim compensation now on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Thankfully, no medical information appears to have been affected. However, this incident is still a breach of the GDPR. What this means for victims is that you can be eligible to pursue compensation if you have suffered any kind of distress as a result of the incident. In most cases, victims of a data breach who pursue a legal case are claiming damages for the distress caused by the loss of control of their personal information. This kind of loss can affect different people in different ways, and for anyone who is adversely affected, we may be able to help.

If you have been affected by this incident or any other form of data breach where your personal information has been misused or exposed, we may be able to help you. We can risk assess the potential case and we can normally tell you quickly if we are able to offer No Win, No Fee representation.

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.
