Personal Information - Advice for Individuals studying or working within NHS Trusts

If the data held on a laptop relates to STH NHS Foundation Trust patients then any loss of data would be the responsibility of the Trust. The data flow needs to be registered by the investigator with the Trust Information Governance Department (if this has not already been done via the Trust Research Department and arrangements made for it to be encrypted).
