Baby records theft in Aberdeen

12th May 2009

An inquiry has been launched following the probable theft and return of hundreds of records of babies born at Aberdeen Maternity Hospital.

NHS Grampian has sent out letters of apology to 175 parents of babies born between 2001 and 2008. NHS Grampian chief executive Richard Carey said security needed to be tightened up and told BBC Scotland: "We very much regret that this has happened and apologise sincerely. We felt we had to write to the parents concerned."
