The records are a combination - emails, meeting minutes and reports, all created by a case manager and carers. They say all manor of lies about me, to make out I was causing conflict and to discredit me. This was because the case manager was not doing her job properly and the carers were neglecting my best friend/ex partner who lives with me and has a 24/7 package of care delivered privately from compensation. The carers were delivering really bad care and each time I complained to management they would all just make up more lies about it. They got progressively worse lies, trying to make out I had a drinking problem, having a breakdown, I was shouting at them, stealing
food, logging of the computer so they couldn't access the care records and timetable, just about anything. They even made out that I was distressing my ex partner, even though his distress was caused by them not treating him well.
I was so stressed I went off work with stress for several months as I was so worried about my best friend I was scared to leave him alone for long periods. The neglect got worse, the lies got worse and I was taken to court to try to be extracted for the care process and to an extent, his life. I was the only one that was there for him after his accident, setting up all the care and providing a house for 8 years!!!
Meanwhile I installed covert CCTV and caught them all neglecting my ex partner, falsifying care records and behaving generally dishonestly, badly and doing none of his rehab programmes, just sat around all day ignoring him. All 5 were suspended for gross misconduct and the case manager stepped down. There is also a POVA and the Police were briefly involved. The judge said I was vindicated. Problem is these records still exist. So whilst I and other health professionals know that I did the right thing and always had his best interests at heart, when no one else did, including his family, who believed the lies, if you read the records alone, it makes me look terrible. I am really not happy for them to remain. It's all hearsay, I can prove a lot of it is not true and in any case they are all completely discredited by their actions, I.e. there was a reason they made it up to cover up what was really happening. What can I do? Surely this breaches DPA rules. Can I sue for slander and damages, the anguish we have been through and I have lost over £13 k in lost wages. He's had to go into hospital as there are no carers left and he is being completely reassessed because of the damage they may have done in declines.
