Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about disclosure of information:
I had a meeting with my employer’s doctor concerning a medical problem I had. He asked me to sign to give my consent for him to contact my GP for further information. I asked what he wanted to find out. In response to my question he moved the form away from me and moved on to the next part of the interview without answering my question. After the interview the doctor stated in a letter to me and my company’s HR department that I had refused permission for him to contact my GP. Which was blatantly wrong and an obvious lie. That was about a year ago and I did not make a formal complaint about it but informed the HR representative dealing with my case that what the doctor had written was untrue. I have another interview with him in a week’s time and I am wondering what my options are if this happens again.
