What is a Medical Data Breach?

A medical data breach occurs when hackers steal or have unauthorised access to health information, whether it’s personal data or info relating to health matters. Medical data is highly valuable because it can give hackers access to multiple identifying characteristics per individual. 

This means, this data can be extremely useful to hackers who could potentially use the data for multiple identity frauds. That’s why medical data breaches have been on the rise for the past five years.

Medical data breaches can occur through hacking or accidental data loss. In both cases, you’re entitled to make a claim and get compensation for it.

Medical Data Breach examples

Here are examples of large medical data breaches that occurred in the UK to give you a sense of the impact these breaches can have.

Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust

The penalty against Brighton and Sussex was at the time the largest medical breach compensation in the UK. The organisation had to pay £325,000 as a fine after they were subject to a breach that released hard drives full of healthcare information. The thieves put the hard drives on eBay for sale, which gives you an idea of the potential risk to those affected.

Belfast Health and Social Care Trust

Belfast Health and Social Care Trust, had to pay a hefty amount of money to compensate for the loss of sensitive information. They were fined £225,000, which at the time was the second highest fine for this type of breach. The Trust experienced a medical data breach when thousands of patient records were found abandoned in a disused hospital.

Frequently asked questions & Useful InfoQuestions we are frequently asked by our users

How Can You Claim Against a Medical Data Breach?

In a lot of cases, organisations responsible for medical data breaches may attempt to compensate affected individuals before they make claims themselves. In a way, this protects them from having to settle claims through the Courts, and it can go some way to improving their reputation after a medical data breach incident. 

If your medical data has been affected by a data breach, the organisation responsible is obliged to inform you about the breach as well as letting the ICO know about the breach.

The ICO doesn’t offer individuals compensation but will investigate the breach, and if necessary, declare the organisation at fault and will often issue a fine. If this occurs then this will boost the chances of making a successful claim.

By contacting us at Data Breach Claims, you ensure you’re getting referred to solicitors that can help you make your case and earn your rightful compensation. That’s, of course, after we advised you on your claim, and looked whether you have a valid medical data breach claim worth pursuing.
