The Charing Cross Gender Identity Clinic accidentally exposed the email addresses of nearly 2,000 individuals, BBC News reports. The London-based clinic sent patients two emails about an art competition; however, each message had hundreds of addresses attached. The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust announced it will investigate the breach. The trust also notified the U.K. Information Commissioner’s Office of the incident. "Due to an error, the email addresses of some of those we are inviting to participate were not hidden and therefore visible to all," a spokesman for the trust said. "We can confirm we are reporting this breach to the [ICO] as well as treating it as a serious incident within the trust."
