I am a married 40 year old who suffers with bi polar. I do not have a relationship with my parents due to this, my doctor was fully aware. Last week, I had a friend come to inform me that my mother and daughter, who are not my carers and I had not signed any authority to disclose medical records or information regarding my health, had an appointment with my doctor regarding sending me to a mental institution they also discussed my health medications I am currently on. As I don't have a relationship with my mother she contacted the friend and told her that she needed to attend an appointment with me otherwise I would be detained. There was no grounds for this to happen I work full time and take my medication regularly. Has my doctor, who I have now lost all faith in, breached Doctor-Patient confidentiality? If so, what can I do about this? It has really up set me.
