Hi, does anyone have any experience of a serious breach of patient confidentiality by GP Surgery? Don't know what to do! I was sent off work by my employer in May after I was told that there was no room for someone who was at 110% at their game. While I was off I became pregnant and told my GP expressly that I did not want my employer to know. My employer requested a medical update on my adhesions when I returned to work 3 weeks ago. The general manager called me today to confirm that I was pregnant!! She had been told this morning by my line manager who had been sent the letter provided by my GP from our HR department!!! I've called my surgery and they insist they didn't mention the pregnancy in my report! I'm angry and upset and really anxious about what will happen when I go into the office tomorrow as I don't know who else has been told. I'm only 13.5wks and wanted to keep it secret until 16-20 depending on bump. I can't stop crying.
