UK HIV Clinic Disclosed Patients' Sensitive Details

An inquiry was ordered in the United Kingdom into how the National Health Service handles confidential medical data. The move was caused by the “completely unacceptable” breach of the privacy of hundreds of HIV patients.


The 56 Dean Street clinic in London sent a newsletter disclosing the names and email addresses of hundreds of its recipients. The message was intended for people using the clinic’s HIV and other sexual health services and provided details of treatments and support. As a result, the Care Quality Commission was ordered to conduct a “thorough and independent review of the effectiveness of existing data security measures” and recommend changes. In addition, the commission will find out how the NHS can improve its security against hacking attacks and eliminate the risk of personnel inadvertently disclosing sensitive data.

56 Dean Street clinic, located in central London, introduces itself as Europe’s busiest sexual health, contraception and HIV care clinic. The interesting fact is that four years ago, it set the world record for the most HIV tests performed in one location: at G-A-Y bar in London on World Aids Day. Back in 2014, the clinic claimed to be the first in the world to have an on-site Infinity machine, which allowed it to give HIV test results within 6 hours.

The clinic apologized shortly after sending the newsletter and promised to find out how the breach had occurred. Perhaps, UK data protection watchdog will also start an investigation into the privacy breach, which was quite big – the newsletter was sent to nearly 780 patients. The fault of the clinic was that it didn’t hide the personal details of those on its recipient list.

A spokesman representing the clinic said that the security breach was down to a “human mistake”. He also made it clear that the employee responsible was distraught. Besides, the clinic pointed out that not all the recipients of the email were necessarily HIV-positive.

In the meantime, the information commissioner’s office (ICO) informed that it was aware of the incident and was also making inquiries. The industry experts remind that the privacy watchdog can levy fines of up to £500,000 for significant data breaches (and this one can be considered significant).
