Poll: Do you trust the HSE with your private data?

It has emerged that 113 serious breaches of data protection occurred within our health service since March 2015.

THE HSE BREACHED serious data protection protocols 113 times over the space of two years, it emerged today.

An x-ray report left in Penneys, a cancer patient’s chart left on the roof of a car before driving away, and a child’s mental-health records accidentally faxed to Bank of Ireland were just some of the glaring mistakes made by health staff.

After each incident, the individual staff members were “reminded of their responsibilities under data-protection legislation”, according to the HSE.

Today we’re asking: Do you trust the HSE with your private data? 


Poll Results:

No  (8062)
