UK: Consultants’ letters about 9 patients given to wrong patient

Elgan Hearn reports that the ICO is investigating a breach involving sensitive information of nine patients.

An envelope containing the nine letters from a consultant for patients right across Shropshire were wrongly included in a letter sent to a patient in Newtown.

The envelope was passed on to health campaigner Cllr Joy Jones, who brought the matter to the attention of the Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Trust (SaTH).
