I had provided the consent many months ago for them to make contact. They did, but what I consider to be privileged information was passed to person(s) not authorized to have it.
They asked again as part of the capability hearing.
I refused citing the following reasons:
- the previous mis-handling of my private medical file
- the fact that the information would be the same as the information thaey had already received as I had not yet completed my 12-week recovery programme.
I suggested it would be more sensible to request the file upon completion of this programme.
My contract was terminated.
I appealed , during which the company asked again for access to my medical file. I consented as the persons involved with the handling of my previous file would not be involved in the appeal process.
I have since reconsidered this because of the reasons listed in my initial inquiry.
