Homecare service 'can't be sure' personal data hasn't been taken

Details for almost a fifth of service users 'mislaid'

A frontline care service 'can't be sure' information that's gone missing, hasn't been taken.

It's after a data breach in the Department of Health and Social Care's homecare service.

Names, addresses and phone numbers have been 'mislaid' from 33 of the 159 users - nearly a fifth.

It supports some of the most vulnerable people in society.

Head of Operations in homecare Jonathan Carey, who explains why the records were kept on paper:

43 people down as next of kin and 11 carers also have this information missing.

An internal investigation has been launched.
