  5. The number of instances where a breach has not led to any disciplinary action. In each case, I request that you provide a list of the offences committed by the individual in question, for example "Accessed personal information for personal interest" or "Inappropriately shared patient information with a third party".
     

I request that the time period covered is 1st April 2011-1st April 2014.
