    Hello @emc123

    I hope you are well?

    I'm unsure what personal details they have access to I'm afraid. I believe they have some knowledge as they are there to support you when getting back to work. It's like when I was under my work coach, and one issue pertaining to my situation is that I couldn't drive or travel long distances. That was part of my Limited Capability To Work Assessment. Instantly, all the emails about HGV driving were gone. 

    But, hopefully someone else is able to answer this a lot more clearly :)

    They can access the WCA report but would need a reason for doing so. They can also see the decision letters too. Is it worrying you them seeing yours @emc123??
