NHS records lost number increases!
It has been reported that the biggest ever loss of patient documents has grown, it’s been reported that another 162,000 undelivered documents have been discovered. The massive scandal first came to light back in February 2017 nearly 8 months ago now. This is where the NHS admitted that 709,000 items of correspondence went walk about, this included things like change of address forms, patients test results and other personal information.
The error was made by NHS Shared Business Services (SBS) which is a joint venture between Steria and the NHS. A team was then tasked with looking into this incident, which included assessing whether the information had affected patients’ health. The team came to the conclusion that everything was under control.
