Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity has said it is cooperating with the Information Commissioner’s Office after the regulator announced plans to fine 11 charities over breaches of data protection law.
The ICO said last week it had notified 11 charities that it planned to fine them for breaking data protection rules.
In response to a Third Sector query about whether Gosh was among this group of charities, a spokeswoman for the charity said: "I am able to confirm that we’re cooperating with the ICO as part of its investigations."
She said that because the process was ongoing it was not appropriate to comment further at this stage.
Gosh and the Cancer Recovery Foundation were two of the charities thought be under scrutiny by the ICO as part of its Operation Cinnabar investigation.
The chief executive of the Diabetes Research and Wellness Foundation, another of the charities that has been investigated by the ICO, has failed to respond to several messages for comment on the matter left by Third Sector over the past 13 days.
The veterinary charity the PDSA, which is also thought to be part of the investigation, has also failed to respond to repeated requests for comment.
