medical records advice
#1
Just a heads up on a mistake Ive recently realised I made. I used a template [maybe from this site, not sure]
Anyway the letter stated parental responsibility blah blah and could I have a copy of medical record. It also requested that my details be entered onto the medical record. Its only sometime after this that I found out my ex had put someone elses info as secondary contact. But the doctor altered it accordingly, and then printed and sent it to me therefore destroying [effectively] the evidence.

Advice, just ask for the medical record first in its current format, after you receive it, go back to the doctor to have the information changed.

Charlie youre a head boy on this site, can you change templates? ive just checked the template on separated dads and it does ask for a copy along with asking for details to be changed. Is it worth changing that?

I’ll check that out but think it needs to be done by admin.

I had a look at the letter template and can’t see a bit that’s an issue? It says to add you as a contact - that’s I can see. If the GP has removed another contact to add you that sounds like they decided that maybe.

Yeah thats what happened, someone else had been added as secondary emergency contact. The doctor removed it and added father but it didnt state who the previous contact was. [I know now it was the sister.

I don’t think court would see that as particularly strong evidence although it adds to the picture. Could you possibly just write them a letter thanking them for updating the records and asking them to please confirm who was the prior person listed as a secondary emergency contact as you need this information for an upcoming court hearing.

They might write back and say yes it was x person. Or they might shy away. Might be worth a try.

It’s on the main website rather than the forum. If you google separated dads letter templates the link should come up to that section of the website.

I took advice not to ask for details of full medical records initially, but to ask for details of any recent diagnoses or treatment and asked to be named on the records and informed of any diagnoses etc. That way they will reply to you and give you what you asked for. But giving out full medical records is at the GP’s discretion and even then they have to get advice from a formal body first I believe. And they can refuse (or ignore) . Circumstances where that might happen are if the ex has made fake claims about you to be put in the medical records. But they are obliged to let you know any current health conditions and put you on the records. So it’s a “way in”. Once you’re on the records and have made that move and sent a polite letter with ID and offering to come in and meet them, you’re in a better position later to ask for full medical records if needed.

I sent proof of ID and of PR, offered to go in, but no need as they wrote back telling me what I needed to know. That they had not seen son since x date and there were no medical issues and definitely not the ones ex claimed there were (I had said - ex informs me son had xyz and please send details of disgnosis, name of consultant and any treatment). They replied saying - not the case. So it then managed to let the surgery know what ex was up to with son without coming across as anti towards her.
