The HSE has secured High Court orders preventing an Information Technology worker distributing or communicating highly confidential and sensitive information about hospital patients.

Mr Justice Tony O’Connor also granted orders restraining Niall Bradley, with an address at Carrigeen Hill, Conna, Co Cork, from leaving Ireland until he has complied with the order to deliver up the confidential information and requiring him to hand over his passport to the gardaí, to be retained until further order. It is alleged Mr Bradley, when he was working for a time with a third party contracted by the HSE to perform IT services, distributed confidential information obtained by him from the HSE’s computer servers.
