How secure are your client files?
A prospect I met for the first time this morning, an NHS employee, gave me a hard time when I left him alone for a few moments in a meeting room that contained client files. Theoretically, the prospect could have opened them and gleaned some personal information. I got quite a dressing down over this to the extent that the prospect claimed I had broken the law. Clearly security procedure within the NHS is of a higher standard than in my little practice, but have I broken the law?
