So once again i had a pointless response from the CQC. They ignored 90% of my complaint.


@KayFSheldon: @danielmcmorrow @Crouchendtiger7 @CareQualityComm Sure do…

I take this as saying the CQC Listen and accept our concerns. However…

@danielmcmorrow: @KayFSheldon @Crouchendtiger7 @CareQualityComm DM me your email and I’ll send you me experience of the CQC.

@KayFSheldon: @danielmcmorrow @Crouchendtiger7 @CareQualityComm Check out CQC website for more info and/or provide comments. Many thanks.

No Response. Sign.



So the above is another song & dance by the CQC with no real content. It’s an attempt to make them look good.

Developed our human rights approach to embed equality and human rights into our new model of regulation and tested this in our inspections of NHS acute hospitals

So when a Dr breached my medical confidently the CQC did nothing.

All doctors must ensure that a patient gives consent to a report being sent to the employer. In addition an employee has a right to see any medical report. However the legal right to see it in advance and withhold consent only applies to reports from a doctor who is treating them, but the GMC guidance makes it clear that this should apply to all medical reports. The doctor should also advise the employee in advance what the report says and discuss any concerns the employee has before it is sent.
If an employer is seeking information from a doctor who has been treating an employee they should get written consent from the employee beforehand and the doctor should not disclose any information to a third party without ensuring that the employee has been given the opportunity of stating whether they wish to see such a report before it is sent.

Confidentiality and medical records

Confidentiality: NHS Code of Practice

The above link is to the document “Confidentiality: NHS Code of Practice”, I assume Blackheath must comply as it was the NHS paying for my care.

I also note:

57. A person cannot ask a patient’s medical practitioner for a medical report on him/her for insurance or employment reasons without the patient’s knowledge and consent. Patients have the option of declining to give consent for a report about them to be written.


59. Once the patient has had access to the report, it should not be supplied to the employer/insurer until the patient has given their consent. Before giving consent, the patient can ask for any part of the report that they think is incorrect to be amended. If an amendment is requested, the medical practitioner should either amend the report accordingly, or, at the patient’s request, attach to the report a note of the patient’s views on the part of the report which the doctor is declining to amend. Patients should request amendments in writing. If no agreement can be reached, patients also have the right to refuse supply of the report

The two statements are taken from
Guidance for Access to Health Records Requests
