Hospital laptops stolen19th June 2008
Laptops containing information about 20,000 patients have been stolen from a hospital in south London.
The six computers contained information about patients, including their medical notes, names, dates of birth and post codes. They were taken from a locked cabinet in a secure room at St George’s Hospital in Tooting this month. The police have launched an investigation and the hospital, which has accepted such information should not have been stored on portable computers, has written to every patient to apologise.
