A former administrator employed by Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust has been prosecuted by the ICO at Medway Magistrates’ Court.

Nicola Wren accessed the sensitive medical records of a patient who was known to her 279 times in a three week period, without any business need to do so, which was without the consent of the data controller. Ms Wren pleaded guilty to the offence under section 55 of the Data Protection Act and was fined £300, ordered to pay costs of £364.08 and a £30 Victim Surcharge.
