Why can't we see what they write about us?!!!

Postby Miss sleepy » Thu Apr 29, 2010 9:40 pm

Today I asked if I could possibly get a photocopy of a document my physio did just 1 page assessment. To which receptionist said oh you can't just go Reading your notes you have to go through legal for permission. WTF!!!! It's written about me! Why am I not entitled to view it?? 1 page to take for my boss to send to HR. Ridiculous

you are entitled to see your notes! at least I'm pretty sure you are, I know I have asked my GP for letters before and he just goes onto the computer and prints them out for me without problems :dunno: :hugs:

Yea gp printed off what rheumi sent and I now evn get her letter cc to me direct. Stupid receptionist. Will ask physio direct next week. Hoping OT will be able to copy her assessment there and then in my appointment as boss is gettin twitchy so my contract renewal hangs in the balance . Dragging myself in at min to convince them I don't have too much time off

thanks Denys

TBH - I have started coming to terms with having to change what I do, applied for DLA to hopefully offset the big cut i will take so hoping that will ease the transition
