What does this mean?

In addition, where applicable data protection laws require us to process special categories of personal data on the basis of a specific lawful justification, we process the same under one of the following additional legal bases:

A. the processing is necessary for the purposes of carrying out the obligations and exercising specific rights in the field of employment and social security and social protection law in so far as it is authorised by Union or Member State law, UK law or a collective agreement pursuant to Member State or UK law providing for appropriate safeguards for the fundamental rights and the interests of the data subject;

This applies to certain processing activities described under section 3.1 A and B above. This may include the following, although this is not an exhaustive list:

  • health and medical information may be used to comply with employment, health and safety or social security laws; for example to avoid breaching legal duties to you and avoid unlawful discrimination or dealing with complaints arising in this regard;

Devosmajo, your mental health examination and evaluation will not be accessible by an employer on a background check. Any records generated by your hospital visit remain private and can be released upon your written authorization only.

You apparently are still worrying about someone finding out that you were taken to the hospital. For this reason, you probably should make an appointment with a doctor to discuss this. Your obsession is not healthy if it keeps you from applying for jobs.
