The government has admitted that medical records of hundreds of thousands of children have gone missing. In view of many other personal and confidential files disappearing, what exactly is the government failing to disclose? There must be tons missing.

Why cannot they transfer these files via computer to computer? Is it beyond their comprehension or something?

Hundreds of thousands of confidential records belonging to NHS patients have gone missing in the latest data scandal to hit the Government.

Nine NHS trusts are now known to have lost data that was stored on either CDs or memory sticks. One CD lost by an east London hospital trust contained the names and addresses of thousands of children.

The trusts admitted breaching strict data protection rules, despite receiving a recent warning from the NHS chief executive over their data-handling responsibilities.

Notes about 160,000 children were reportedly lost by London's City & Hackney Primary Care Trust after a computer disc failed to arrive at its destination.

The other trusts involved are Bolton Royal Hospital, Sutton and Merton PCT, Sefton Merseyside PCT, Mid-Essex Care Trust, East and North Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Norwich and Gloucester Partnership Foundation Trust.
