If you are working in the UK, you are not required to tell your employer if you have a disability or if you are living with a health condition. Disclosing personal health information should always be a choice that you have made.

If your condition doesn’t have an impact on your work or compromise health and safety, then you may choose not to disclose this. However, it might be helpful, especially if you think you may require additional support or adaptations to carry out the role.

You can ask your HR department or line manager to keep this confidential.
