"It's a terrible idea because you're naively copying around clinical data containing the most sensitive personal information ..."

With respect, data that is already on a simple network share of the type that is most vulnerable to a ransomware infected client encrypting the lot is already stored "... with no heed paid to audit, retention or access control."

Nothing to stop you using an encrypted FS for the private storage. But even if you don't you're hardly increasing your exposure any more than having a secondary backup system.
