One of Britain's leading sexual health clinics has apologised after 
mistakenly revealing the identities of hundreds of HIV-positive patients.

The 56 Dean Street clinic in London sent a newsletter on Tuesday that 
disclosed the names and email addresses of about 780 recipients. The 
newsletter is intended for people using its HIV and other sexual health 
services, and gives details of treatments and support.
