MS Diagnosed Cop Kept in the Dark

Imagine feeling something is wrong with you and yet having no clue what it is? Police constable Gary Dimmock, 42 felt the same for almost the last 10 years before// he was informed that he was suffering from multiple sclerosis (MS).

MS is an disabling neurological disease characterized by symptoms such as fatigue and limb weakness among others.

An award winning cop, Dimmock will receive a compensation of 10,000 pounds as an out-of -court settlement from East Sussex Hospitals, an NHS (National Health Service) trust of Britain.

Dimmock had seen a line of specialist doctors for various symptoms, which he says almost, drove him to suicide.

Yet it was not until 2003 that he was informed he had MS. Dimmock says he had researched his symptoms on Internet and was accused of being a ‘cyberchondriac’, when he questioned his doctors many times.

Accused of ‘playing God’ and misusing ‘therapeutic privilege’ the hospital has now apologized.Yet the hospital has given no explanation for the act of the doctors, nor has any punishment being given to them.

Says deputy information commissioner David Smith, "The Information Commissioner's Office will not hesitate to use the powers we have to defend people's right to see information that is held about them. Such information should be given in writing to the concerned parties within 40 days according to the data protection act.
