Ireland BS: med consent advice (6) BS: med consent advice 09 Apr 03


I was recently assessed for a new wheelchair, to be paid for by a fund.

The fund admin asked for a report from the suppliers OT, this person was asking all sorts of personal questions, I realised that she was carrying out an actual examination/assessment. I stopped it and told the OT she did not have my permission to go any further, she insisted she could get my medical records, I know she can't. I said I did not consent to her examining me in any way, she told me she was asked to do it and she will finnish it any way.


I have not given my consent in verbal or written form, the OT was not NHS, but acting privately, she refused to hand over her report conclusions, so part of my medical history is in a w'chair suppliers, sensitive info such as my condition how it affects me,medication etc. and this person will not relinquish it.

Any help would be appreciated. What laws can I quote to enforce my request. This person is not an NHS employee.
