NHS Connecting for Health (NHS CFH) is part of the Department's Informatics Directorate. However, there are a number of fundamental differences between the Department and NHS CFH including suppliers and equipment used. It is therefore deemed appropriate to display the figures for NHS CFH losses and thefts separately to the rest of the Department.

NHS CFH losses and thefts 1 May 2010 to 30 September 2011
Computers 13
Mobile telephones (includes all mobile devices) 32
BlackBerries 0
Other IT equipment 9
Total 54
