Loss of sensitive personal data.
A member of staff lost patient’s records in a public place.
Undertaking issued to ensure that personal data is kept sufficiently secure and that staff are made aware that the removal of such data without clearance is unacceptable.
Reason for action
The member of staff had recently joined the organisation and received no information governance training. This followed a similar loss of data the previous year.
