Harbottle GP Surgery - NHS accused of Data Protection Act breach by sharing medical records without consent.
Patient medical records have been shared without consent - this can constitute as a breach of the Data Protection Act.
If your private and personal information has been mishandled or misused then you can be entitled to claim compensation. The Data Protection Act is there to protect you and to allow you to be compensated if an organisation handling your data doesn't handle it safely or correctly.
The public sector is often at the heart of Data Protection breaches and leaks. When it comes to the NHS it can be even more important that they uphold the Data protection Act given our fundamental rights to privacy when it comes to our health and treatment.
The NHS is accused of passing medical records on without the consent of patients following the closure of the Harbottle GP Surgery in Northumberland. This is another example of a serious data protection breach involving the NHS, and the victims of this misuse of private information may be entitled to claim compensation.
For hundreds of patients this has been conducted as an 'automatic transfer' despite no consent being given by the patients whose records have been moved. This can constitute as a breach of the Data Protection Act meaning the patients may be entitled to claim.
Medical records are private and confidential - they should only be shared or disclosed with your express consent.
