If I'm being precious about this please tell me! Had a hospital appointment this afternoon - on the consultants desk, right next to me, was a list of his afternoon appointments, including full names, D.O.B's, contact numbers & details of why they were seeing him, i.e. ailments. Obviously my details were on there. Presume he knew the list was there - he couldn't miss it. I work in the NHS & have to do training re patient identifiable info, so presume he must do too - would IBU to speak to someone at the hospital & let them know this Dr is leaving stuff lying around?

Report it. That's breaching the data protection act.

My midwife did this three years ago. I saw all of the people in my village who were pregnant.
