Resolved Question:

Hi I have been sent a consent form by caf cass to give my permision for them to access police, local authority records i have no problem with them looking at my police records my question is is this just police records or does it give them permission also to pry into my medical history or any councelling i may have received

also i assume if i deny this it will mean a court order may be made thus delaying me seeing my daughter further
 and making me seem obstructive

as i have said not worried about police, just dont want them prying into my medical records

no it just says access to "police, local authority" i assume this means police only not medical s services hospital councelling etc

Hi
Then no signing it will not allow them to access your medical records.
You would need to sign a separate and specific consent for that
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
