I have got a patient record from my GP surgery. In one of yhe appoitments the GP said "stress at work". I am now filling out critical illness application and one of questions is whether i expetienced Stress in the past. Shall I say YES ? Or is it a minor episode and not medical condition? OR can I ask GP to change the record and not yi say STress but Uncomfortable situation?

The medical record cannot be changed. Amendments may be written. You will need to say yes.

Hi, sometimes this is taken as 'stress' and sometimes not. If no action was taken ie counselling or meds then it could be disregarded.

Also was it prior to 5 years or within the last 5?

I had counselling and I had to declare the stress in my critical cover. However it runs out at the end of 5 years from those dates and if I do a new policy at that time then it won't get included.

Oh, and if you say NO now, if ever you need to claim this will be dug up and could invalidate your claim. Best to be honest.
