Another day another IT Security breach

This morning I was at Georges Hospital in Tooting for one of my regular visits. Once again the doctor leaves the room and leaves his computer unlocked. I was able to grab this photograph and other information on my medical record. (I wont post that stuff here, neither will I post the picture of my penis as it will take you 6 months to scroll down to see the full length!)   IMG_0344   I last wrote about data protection breaches in September 2013 on this very blog. In 3 years nothing has changed at St Georges Hospital, doctors are still putting patients personal information at risk. This is a shocking state of affairs, just because staff cannot be bothered to lock their workstations before they leave a room. As someone who has worked hard on IT security related matters in the NHS in the past I find this a crying shame. If I had 2 more minutes I would have quite easily have had information on other patients as well that I could have posted here. I certainly would not have minded the personal phone number of the drop dead gorgeous blond lady in the short dress who was in reception at the same time! Note to St Georges Hospital. This is bloody unacceptable in this day and age. Next time I will name and shame your staff here.
