Personal data of vulnerable people may be at risk after a cybersecurity attack against a health equipment provider.

Camden Council has said that NRS Healthcare, which provides beds, hoists and grab rails to support independent living in the borough, had “recently” experienced a cyber security attack.

The details of any possible security breach are not known at this time, or if any personal data has been obtained.

A council spokesperson explained: “We are working alongside our partners to liaise with NRS about the cyber attack, and our data protection teams are closely monitoring the situation to establish what data, if any, has been compromised.

“The council does not currently have access to the data held by NRS but this will contain personal data such as names, addresses, phone numbers and details of equipment issued.”

They added that as a “preventative measure”, those with equipment should be extra vigilant with any phone calls, emails or visits from people they do not know.

If you received equipment from NRS and have any questions or concerns you can call them on 0300 100 0253 or email

Anyone who is concerned or would like further information, either for themselves or for a family member or friend, can call 020 7361 2644 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm).
