Hospital patients' records stolen

The medical records of almost 2,000 patients have been stolen from two hospitals in East Yorkshire.

The Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust said it had written to 1,800 renal and urology patients after the theft of two computers.

The trust said: "A laptop was stolen from a locked office at our Castle Hill Hospital site and a PC was taken from a ward area at Hull Royal Infirmary.

"We know that some patient information was stored on the computers."

The trust said it was reviewing its security procedures.
