Legal Updates – Data Protection - Fine

Data Protection - ICO Fine – NHS Trust – Data Protection Act 1998

 

The Information Commissioner’s Office (“ICO”) recently imposed a monetary penalty of £100,000 on the NHS Commissioning Board on behalf of recently dissolved, NHS Trust in Stockport.

 

The fine was imposed after a large number of documents, including patient records, were discovered at a site that used to be owned by the Trust.

 

Further details on this can be found at the ICO’s website, along with the ICO’s top tips to assist organisations moving premises.
