I have been off sick for a couple of weeks but have a plan in place to return with amended duties. I gave a fit note to my headteacher as soon as I could. I have been asked to fill in a form, ask my GP to complete another one and speak with an occupational health worker for the school’s insurance company. The process involves me giving my consent for my medical records to be shared with the insurance company. Can I refuse to consent to this on the grounds of wanting my medical records to remain private? If I refuse to consent, what would happen?
