Are medical records secure?

29th March 2010

Big Brother Watch has said in a report that more than 100,000 non-medical NHS staff can access patient records.

Campaign director Dylan Sharpe said the Department of Health "claim we have 'muddled' paper and online records. We have done no such thing. It doesn't matter what format records are in, if the wrong kind of staff can look at them, and look without good reason, this constitutes a security breach. Until the NHS and Department of Health can get their act together on medical record security, we urge you all to opt out."
