The laptop held the records of 5,000 patients that had an unspecified blood disease. Reportedly the notebook disappeared in early January from the outpatient department of Russells Hall Hospital in Dudley.
The data on the computer contained medical records, addresses and birthdates of the 5,000 patients. Despite new security practices put in place by the hospital the data was not encrypted so the thief’s have access to the data.
