Did he really blow the whistle on security fears? tribunal asked
By Gareth Corfield 11 Jan 2019
A former vice president of medical app Your.MD has claimed "false information could be fed into the diagnostic system" as a result of security failings in the software's backend.
Randeep Sidhu is claiming he was unfairly dismissed from his £110,000 post as Your.MD's deputy veep of product after making legally protected disclosures about the state of the software back in 2017.
The app itself lets users input symptoms of illness and then suggests potential diagnoses and presents medical information. Judging by its "About" page, it appears to draw some of its responses from the NHS Choices medical info website.
