I have a relative who seems clearly to me to be in the early stages of dementia with short-term memory problems the main symptom. There are other medical issues as well and the relative is very old. I approached the relative's GP and expressed concern about driving, asking the GP to consider whether he should be driving and stressing that this was a decision for the GP to make after proper consideration. I expressly stated that what I told the GP was confidential but the GP has telephoned the relative and told him that I have raised concerns. This may do serious harm to the relationship because the person concerned is in complete denial of any deterioration in mental health and believes he is an excellent driver unimpaired by age or infirmity of mind or body, so he is upset and angry that I should have done this. I have complained about the breach of my confidence by the GP. I have not asked the GP to disclose anything at all to me. I am wondering if anyone knows where I stand on this, was i right to expect that the GP would keep infomation I gave him to himself?
