First GP Practice Fined

The first GP Practice has been fined for a data breach – https://ico.org.uk/about-the-ico/news-and-events/news-and-blogs/2016/08/fine-for-gp-surgery-that-failed-to-protect-patient-s-personal-data/.

The low fine possibly reflects the financial pressure this will place them under and that in reality they should have received a higher one.

The precedent is that no-one should expect preferential treatment because of who they are.

This was not an IT breach – this was a breach linked to staff failing to understand their responsibilities and failing to listen to what the data subject had stated.
