UK: NHS chiefs apologise
HEALTH bosses have apologised after the names and addresses of patients were stolen from a nurse’s car.
The details of 233 patients in Rutland and Leicestershire were taken. The information included names and addresses of GP practices and the patients’ NHS reference numbers.
The theft came as Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Trust said it was carrying out a review after discovering an error affecting about 5,700 patient records.
