For anyone who still thinks the Named Person legislation is still a good idea.

Dundee City Council publishes details of vulnerable children on its website.

I think the council is more at fault as opposed to the legislation. Their stupidity for breaching confidentiality.

Its always been the danger of holding all the data in one place.

You could say that about any information database though. I work in the NHS. If I leaked patient-sensitive information, it wouldn't be the fault of the clinical information system that I use. It would be human error i.e. my fault.

the children named in the doc were already in the care system with a social worker, had been for years. what the papers didn't say was the document in question was written in 2012 so its quite old. I do think its interesting that they were potentially collecting information about childrens wellbeing long before the NP act came along.
