Hi, Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. This would be a very serious of the Data Protection Act 1998 if they were circulating your medical records and using them for a purpose for which you had not reasonable consented. If they have done this you need to either raise a grievance or if they do not take it seriously complain to the Information Commissioner - breach is particularly serious because medical records could be considered sensitive personal data - and while you might have consented to them holding these records - they would have to be careful to obtain your consent to do almost anything with them.Can I assist you any further? Kind regards AJ
