I would really appreciate some help / advice regarding my situation wit the DWP and MAXIMUS UK.
The full ongoing post is here: http://www.getoutofdebtfree.org/forum/v ... V2YFUZTPK9
Is there anything at all I can do regarding MAXIMUS UK continuing to process my data and their statement of : “Therefore, Centre for Health and Disability Assessments (operated by MAXIMUS UK), will only process a person’s data when referred to us by the DWP.”
And here is the reply I received from MAXIMUS UK:
Centre for Health and Disability Assessments
Operated by MAXIMUS'
Tel: 0113 2327015 Fax: 0113 2327178
Thank you for your further letter dated 2015 which refers to the Data Controller and a notice pursuant to section 10 of the Data Protection Act 1998.
I can advise that the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is the Data Controller for all data processed as part of the Government’s Health Assessment Advisory Service. Therefore, Centre for Health and Disability Assessments (operated by MAXIMUS UK), will only process a person’s data when referred to us by the DWP.
Therefore, I have forwarded your correspondence to the DWP’s Health Services Directorate for a reply. Should you need to contact them, their address is;
DWP Health Services Directorate
2nd Floor, Phase 2
I hope this is helpful clarification.
I am at a loss as to what actions are now open to me!
Would a "cease and desist" notice be of any help?
