Private NHS contractor ‘loses half a million medically sensitive documents’

”More than half a million sensitive NHS documents were kept in storage by a private company instead of being delivered to doctors, hospitals and others between 2001 and 2016, it has been reported.

The papers were said to include medical test results, diagnoses of illnesses including cancer and information relating to child protection, according to the Guardian.

They were not delivered after errors by a contractor, NHS Shared Business Services (SBS), meant they were sent to a warehouse instead, the newspaper said. The company is owned by the Department of Health and Sopra Steria, a French firm.”

Halo
“A jointly set up” company? Watch the finger pointing get nowehere then as everyone points to everyone else. Pathetic. Best just sack the head of the NHS and Sterias for being incompetent and start again.

GW:  “Lost’ them?  Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha ……. Sold them more like!
