TOPIC: My legal rights before and especially in a medical

My legal rights before and especially in a medical 2 weeks 3 days ago #202044

What are my rights at a medial assessment, how are my Human rights to safety and privacy protected? what are they NOT allowed to do ,say.or ask e.g ' was asked for the names and addresses of all my friends, also the medical details of an aunt who lived with me.... I felt these to be a breach of mine and there rights and nothing to do with my conditions... so where do I stand
what can I do if i feel the questioning is becoming detrimental to my health
or I find the demeanour of the assessor anti-social/demeaning etc.
who's liable for carrying out actions when asked to do so, and how can i protect myself from potential harm by not doing something without damaging my assessment e.g. saying ' before i do that i need you to put the demand in writing as I know what your requesting me to do puts me at risk of harm'

Your post implies that you have had an assessment where these questions were asked, so my answer may be arbitrary!

You need to separate being asked something and doing it or answering it, they can ask you what they want if they think it is related to your claim, you do not need to do anything that would cause you pain or distress, although you should explain why you are refusing.

As to the questions, although unusual, it could have been a test of your memory.

Do I think you rights have been breached? In all honesty no, but if you want to complain then contact the Assessment Provider.
