Stoke Sentinel
“Hundreds of trainee doctors’ addresses and other personal details were accidentally posted on a Merseyside hospital trust's website in a “shocking” blunder."
 

“There is a risk anyone searching for a particular doctor on the internet may have been able to find their mobile number, national insurance number, workplace, email and home address, according to the Health Service Journal.

Almost 500 trainee doctors were affected, and it is not known how long the spreadsheet containing the data was available online before it was taken down.”

With the new GDPR regulations due to come into effect in May 2018 organisations in Liverpool and Merseyside need to have processes in place to enable individuals to have the ‘right to be forgotten’.

As part of the data mapping process, organisations are required to monitor all 3rd party data processors like shredding and storage companies as they come into contact and have access to individuals’ data and information.
