I'm starting uni in september and have been asked to fill out an occupational health check form. I have severe anxiety and depression but have never been formally diagnosed for them. Can I still put them on my form without getting caught out?

I don't understand....are you asking can you lie about having been diagnosed with something you have not been diagnosed with?

Yes, they can liaise with your GP to get more information about things that you have put on your form.

If you phrase it along the lines of "I sometimes feel depressed and anxious" then you're stating symptoms and not a diagnosis, surely?

If they want more information, then they'll ask. They'll probably need to ask your permission to access your medical records (or to consult your GP).
