The tribunal orders the claimant to provide GP and OH

This answer was rated:

The tribunal orders the claimant to provide GP and OH records to the respondent which they consent to. The respondent solicitor then comes back to request you also provide counselling records. The respondent solicitor then requests that the claimant provide counselling records because the claimant mentioned at Preliminary hearing that she had received counselling because OH recommended it. The solicitor says its relevant to disability claim. The counselling service was part of a work employee assistant programme and not linked to the GP or OH medical records in anyway? Is she best advised to provide this information.
Hello my name is***** am a solicitor and I am happy to help you today. Are you the claimant in this scenario?

What is the nature of the disability?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
depression and anxiety
Ok thanks, ***** ***** my view that these records would be relevant to the issue of disability. If you do not disclose them the the tribunal is likely to order disclosure. I would therefore suggest you do disclose them. If you have any further questions please do ask. If I have answered your question I would be grateful if you would be so kind as to take the time to rate my answer as I am not otherwise paid for working on your question. Thank you and all the best.
