UK: Patient files found in corridor
Confidential patient files have been left lying in a corridor at St George’s Hospital in south London.
The files were found by a BBC London reporter on Thursday after a tip-off.
The find comes months after six laptops containing information about 20,000 patients were stolen from a locked cabinet at the same hospital.
St George’s Healthcare NHS Trust said the files were in a corridor which should have been locked and apologised to patients.
