Additional checks for health workers after NHS data breach

03 July 2018 – Press & Journal

Health workers were ordered to carry out additional checks before sending out confidential information, following a data breach at NHS Grampian.

Last month, Moray MP Douglas Ross was accidentally sent details about a patient from Aberdeen along with a response to a request about a constituent.

The health board launched a full investigation into the incident and has now confirmed that “additional procedures” have been implemented to limit the chances of a similar incident occurring.
