UK: Patient personal details will now be encrypted after laptop theft say hospital bosses

A follow-up to a breach reported on this blog in December 2010:

The computer, stolen from Calderdale Royal Hospital, contained 1,569 patient records including names, dates of birth and addresses when it was noticed missing on November 22 last year.
