Hi Looking for some advice please. I have to fill in a medical questionnaire and take it with me to interview in sealed envelope. OK to declare type 1 and high blood pressure (all controlled well) but its asking me if I give permission for my GP to release my medical records. It is also asking about time off work in the last 12 months. Do I need to declare this? I know that employers aren't supposed to discriminate but...I have suspected early onset MS (waiting for tests) but I was diagnosed with a one off neurological episode last year which I will have to declare. I took some time off work (signed off) for a couple of months, then my fixed contract ended (which I was wanted anyway). Now working in temp role since September 2016. I suppose I've got no choice, but as I'm going for an office job (council), I don't know why it would need my GP records?
