Tom Wells in the Sun reports that an urgent review has been ordered after a confidential child protection report drawn up by staff at the council involved in the Baby P scandal was found after being mislaid by a member of staff on a railway carriage. The 15-page Haringey Council file, which included details about a boy taken away from his mother over fears he could be abused.
Isn’t it about time that we made it illegal to carry unencrypted confidential information in public? Seems like the only sure fire way of stopping these “isolated cases”.
Haringey Council should urgently seek the advice of Mobile Service providers eg. the Public Sector Team at BlackBerry who presented the results of their work with Direct Care Services at Glasgow City Council at the recent Mobile Healthcare Industry Summit.
