    Yes, Lily: really. Enquiries can take place I believe once a conditional job offer has been made but it shouldn't form part of the application form now.

    "Under the terms of the Equality Act 2010, employers may no
    longer ask questions about a candidate's health until a conditional job
    offer
    has been made. Referees should therefore not be asked to comment on a
    candidate's health or their sickness absence record".
