A computer printout containing patient information was left in a general folder used for auditing that was accidently left on a tube train.
Undertaking issued to ensure that psuedonymisation techniques are used where individual identification of patients is needed for audit work.
Reason for action
Although much audit work is carried out at home there was no need for this computer print out to contain the genuine identities of patients.
