1/5 of NHS Trusts fail privacy standard

Standard C9 on records says: “Healthcare organisations have a systematic and planned approach to the management of records to ensure that, from the moment a record is created until its ultimate disposal, the organisation maintains information so that it serves the purpose it was collected for and disposes of the information appropriately when no longer required.” The Healthcare Commission has found that 19% of trusts fell short of this target. (Thanks, Paul!)
