I requested a letter from Nethergreen Surgery referring me to a private hospital for a consultation about varicose vein surgery. I received the letter but it included historical medical history that I did not request and did not find relevant.
The medical history included a historical traumatic event that I had never seen in writing before and, as I was not expecting to see it, it caused me some distress that I feel could have been avoided if it had not been sent to me or if, at the least, I had been warned that I would be receiving this information.
I also opened the letter in the presence of family members who do not know my medical history which added to my distress.
