Submission + - NHS Fined After Computer Holding Paitent Records Found On eBay (techweekeurope.co.uk)

judgecorp writes: NHS Surrey, part of Britain's health service, has been fined £200,000 when a computer holding more than 3000 patient records was found for sale on eBay.. The system was retired, and given to a contractor who promised to dispose of it securely for free, in exchange for any salvage value... but clearly just put the whole system up for sale.
