If you have been affected by the Charing Cross Gender Identity Clinic email leak, we may be able to assist you with a claim for compensation.
We also deal with medical data breach compensation claims, which are still cases involving elements of medical negligence. Cases work in a very similar way as they do with injury claims, where we can represent you on a No Win, No Fee basis.
If you were a victim of the GIC incident, we may be able to help you. We’re taking cases forward now and have already launched legal action in response to the data breach.
Compensation for the Charing Cross Gender Identity Clinic email leak
You may be entitled to claim data breach compensation as a victim of the recent Charing Cross Gender Identity Clinic email leak.
Victims can be entitled to claim for the distress caused by the loss of control of their personal information. We understand that two emails were sent to almost 2,000 people, with around 900 individuals in each batch. Instead of proper software being used to send the mass mails, emails were sent using the “CC” function. This has resulted in the recipients’ information being visible to other recipients.
This should never have been allowed to happen in the first place. The management at the clinic, and the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust who is responsible for the clinic, must be held to account.
How does a medical data breach compensation claim work?
A medical data breach compensation claim is similar to other negligence cases that we take forward. We can represent victims on a No Win, No Fee basis, and individuals can be entitled to recover damages for the impact of the breach.
In terms of the Charing Cross Gender Identity Clinic email leak, claims can be based on the loss of control of what is very personal and sensitive information. As we have done in the similar 56 Dean Street Clinic data leak, victims could be entitled to recover thousands or tens of thousands of pounds in damages.
GDPR – as well as allowing fines to be issued by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) – allows for people to claim compensation for the distress caused by a breach. Fines issued by the ICO are not usually intended to be for compensation, which is why we can then take claims forward as well.
