James Wyllie reports:

Health bosses are preparing to move hundreds of thousands of patient records to a secret location within Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

Work to move the documents, currently housed in a secure basement beneath the hospital, is scheduled to begin next month.


NHS Grampian is keeping the documents’ new home top secret in order to minimise the chances of any data breach.

The relocation follows a flash flood at the site in July 2015, when two weeks’ of rain fell in the space of around three hours.

Water then poured into the storage basement, destroying the hand-written counterparts of more than 8,000 records.
