AU: Medical records strewn in abandoned Dore clinic in Hawthorn

Belinda Smith reports:

Thousands of children’s medical files from a controversial treatment program for hyperactivity and dyslexia have been left strewn throughout an abandoned clinic in Melbourne’s inner east for the past three years.

The files — which include names, dates of birth, home addresses and medication details — were left inside the Dore clinic in the affluent suburb of Hawthorn when the British-based parent company went into voluntary administration in 2008.

Since then, squatters and vandals have trashed the building, allowing anyone to walk in the back door and access the archives, The Australian reports.

Appalling.
