Private Babylon Health video consultations leaked to other users

By Chloe Kent

UK general practice app Babylon Health has admitted that recordings of private consultations were accidentally leaked to other users.

On 9 June, app user Roy Glover found that he had been given access to footage of roughly 50 other patients’ consultations in the app via the Consultation Replays section.
