Came accross this and thought it important enought to post.:peep:

Make sure you tell your Doctor that he must contact you personaly for consent if ATOS are requesting any Medical Reports etc.

Consent

DWP obtain consent (1) from the patient (2) to approach you for the release of clinical information. Therefore you can rely on an assurance from DWP or a healthcare professional working for Atos Healthcare that consent has been provided and there is no requirement for you to ask to see a copy of the patient’s consent.

1. Consent may be provided either in writing, electronically or verbally. DWP has procedures in place to ensure that consent is valid.

2. Occasionally consent may be provided by a third party acting on the patient’s behalf.

• If the patient is mentally incapable of managing his own affairs, and there is power of attorney or an appointee is acting on behalf of the patient, as permitted in legislation.

• If the patient is potentially terminally ill and the claim to benefit has been made by a third party on the patient’s behalf, as permitted in legislation.

You have it bit arse upwards. The Doctor doesnt need to ask for your consent to pass your details on as you have signed the bottom of the ESA50 giving consent for ATOS to contact them for informations. Why would you want the Doctor to contact you for consent when you must surely want your GP to support you and give a full report to ATOS???????

l I agree that

– the Department for Work and Pensions

– any health care professional advising the

Department

– any organisation with which the Department

has a contract for the provision of medical

services

may ask any of the people or organisations

mentioned on this questionnaire for any

information which is needed to deal with

– this claim for benefit

Hi Invalidation,

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

I don't have anything upside down or back to front as you so politely put it, I have copied this as it is.

 

In the ESA50 forms it does give you the option to decline this contact permission as well as giving the option for the DWP permission to contact your GP, many chose the latter but then don't realise what they are letting themselves in for which is why the horror stories emerge. In the end we all think we are doing right by choosing this option, it is the aftermath which then follows.

 

The point I was trying to make is this, yes I signed my ESA50 so the “DWP” can contact my doctor, NOT ATOS.

If ATOS request any information from my doctor then I have requested that he contacts me first before releasing said info to them.

 

It is my GOD GIVEN RIGHT to ask what information ATOS are requesting from my doctor, before He/she sends said info, moreover if I don’t like what ATOS are requesting then I will tell him/her not to disclose that information.

 

My Medical records are for me and my doctor’s eyes only, that is why I opted out of the system that asked for my records to be transferred to computer thus ensuring my records stay in paper form.

 

As for me wanting all the help I can get to help me with my Tribunal, well do you honestly think for one moment that Atos would do anything to help you win said Tribunal…I don’t think so.

 

If and when I require a Medical cover note for my Tribunal then I can ask my Doctor for said info myself, what I will not do is give ATOS any ammunition to put in their gun and then shoot me in the head at my Tribunal.

 

I would not trust ATOS with anything, nuf said.

Love and Peace always
