An unencrypted laptop containing medical details of several thousand patients has been stolen from the car of a senior Colchester University Hospital manager.
The details included names, dates of birth, postcodes and treatment plans.
Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust said police were called and it has written to all affected patients to inform them of the loss.
The trust says the information was password protected and it has copies of all the data.
