Princess Kate security fears after hospital staff ‘tried to access medical records’

The London Clinic has launched an urgent probe after reports Princess Kate’s patient confidentiality was breached when she underwent planned abdominal surgery there in January.

Hospital bosses are reportedly distraught after an alleged attempt by colleagues to look at the Princess of Wales’s private medical information.

The Mirror reports that at least one member of staff was said to have been caught trying to access the mother of three’s notes while she was a patient there earlier this year.

The hospital in Marylebone, central London has a reputation for discreetly treating royals, including King Charles, as well as celebrities and high-ranking politicians.

According to the report, the hospital has already informed Kensington Palace about the security breach and the Princess of Wales is believed to have been made aware of the alleged incident.

A source told the Mirror: “This is a major security breach and incredibly damaging for the hospital, given its unblemished reputation for treating members of the Royal Family.

“Senior hospital bosses contacted Kensington Palace immediately after the incident was brought to their attention and assured the palace there would be a full investigation.

“The whole medical staff have been left utterly shocked and distraught over the allegations and were very hurt that a trusted colleague could have allegedly been responsible for such a breach of trust and ethics.”

The hospital reportedly did not comment on the alleged incident but told the publication: “We firmly believe that all our patients, no matter their status, deserve total privacy and confidentiality regarding their medical information.”

The Metropolitan Police has not confirmed whether it had been informed of the allegations, according to the report.
