UK: Patient data of 45,000 'is stolen from cupboard'

SOUTHWARK PRIMARY Care Trust lost sensitive and confidential information on 45,000 of the country’s most vulnerable patients, after a portable hard drive was reportedly stolen from a specialist disability rehabilitation centre.

The hard drive – containing the name, address, telephone number and a description of the level of disability of 45,000 patients at Crystal Palace’s Bowley Close, went missing from a locked cupboard.

The cupboard was described as ‘not normally accessible to the public’, and the disk went missing sometime between January 25-28.
