Number of confidential breaches

Waiting for an internal review by Lewisham Borough Council of their handling of this request.

Dear Lewisham Borough Council,

Can you please tell me how many times between 2015 and Dec 2017 have lewisham social services breached people's confidential information.

And how many of the breaches resulted in the staff members being given warnings, being fired, or made to retrain in data protection? How many did not get held accountable?

Yours faithfully,

E andy
