    Hello @Sharon45 and welcome to the community.

    First of all make a Subject Access Request (SAR) for any information they are holding about you, and particulary any medical information.

    Make it clear you want to know what medical information they have, how they use this, who they share it with and where they got this information from.

    Any information which is inaccurate or wrong you can request that they either amend it or remove it and confirm with you when this has been done.

    If they refuse then contact the Information Commisioner's Office (ICO) to see if you can lodge a formal complaint. 

    I believe they have about a month to respond to a SAR request. 

    Hope this helps.
