Data breach

6 September 2019

We are currently investigating a data security incident.

This incident involved an email from our Patient and Public Involvement team regarding an art project that we are looking forward to launching. Unfortunately, due to an error, the email addresses of some of those we are inviting to participate were not hidden and therefore visible to all.

We are hugely apologetic and understand that this is a serious data breach. 

We can confirm we are reporting this breach to the Information Commissioner's Office as well as treating it as a serious incident within the Trust.

If you are distressed by this incident and would like to contact us, please feel free to call on 0208 938 7590 or contact the PALS services here:

If you would like to make a complaint about what has occurred, you are welcome to do this here:

 Again, we offer our sincerest apologies.
