Scottish health boards broke data laws27th November 2008
The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has found NHS Tayside and NHS Lanarkshire guilty of breaching the Data Protection Act after they left patients' personal information at abandoned hospitals.
In May it emerged that documents had been discovered at Strathmartine Hospital on the outskirts of Dundee while in July a similar find was made at the former Law Hospital in Carluke. The ICO has demanded that both health boards sign an agreement to follow the Data Protection Act and ensure it does not happen again.
