A friend of mine who is also under mental health services, requested a copy of her medical notes. When she received them there were some entries in her notes that named me directly and the comments were very derogatory. I was really surprised that my name had appeared in someone elses notes and that they were then shared with my friend.
Her CPN had written that I was angry, anti services, engineering and worse of all malevolent which basically means evil. This person does not work with me directly and has not met me directly over the period they wrote the comments about me and it has been very distressing and triggering for both me and my friend to find such comments in her notes
If anyone read these comments they would have a very poor view of me which is untrue.
I have written to the CPN to ask for an explanation a few weeks ago but have had no response at all. I had hoped that we could talk through why they had such a poor view of me
I have also written to the Trust to complain about a breach in data protection. Notes were sent to a third party with my full name on them without my consent. The ICO have advised me that this is a serious breach of data protection. I have had no response so far
This has had a detrimental effect on my mental health making me paranoid - does everyone think I am evil? It has also had an impact on my friendship which has been very distressing for me
