Acorn Healthcare Services are in hot water after client records containing private medical information meant to be binned and shredded were found scattered alongside a busy road.

The papers disclosed names, ages, dates of birth, addresses and medical conditions such as mental illnesses and physical disabilities, clients’ routines and where they kept their medication. Acorn clients whose records were found are now concerned with their personal safety, with the possibility of identity theft and break and enter a potential threat.
