Access Requests for Medical Reports

Under GDPR and the Data Protection Acts, you may obtain a copy of the medical report furnished to your employer or insurance company following your medical assessment at Medwise.

You should put your request in writing to the individual who commissioned Medwise to prepare the report. This is normally the HR Manager in a workplace or the Health Claims Assessor in an insurance company.

The employer / insurance company has responsibility as a Data Controller under the terms of the Data Protection Act to release the report within 30 days of receiving a request in writing.

Further details on Subject Access Request (SARs) and the Data Protection Acts can be obtained from:

The Office of the Data Protection Commissioner, Canal House, Station Road, Portarlington, Co. Laois, Ireland.
