    I will get you a copy from his check up report ...

    You were asked about someone's health. The questioner was told that the person he asking about suffering from chronic disease. Would it be correct to say I am so sorry to hear that. I don't know. However, I will try my best to get you a copy from his check up report and send it to you to see it yourself correct?

    In the US, that would be impossible because of doctor-patient confidentiality laws.

    What is the best response, concerning using correct English, in such a situation, please?

    There is no correct English way of saying this. In all English-speaking countries that I know of, the situation is the same as in the US.

    Let's imagine the unlikely scenario in which a doctor might be willing to hand over confidential medical information to a third party.

    A: I've been told that Mr XXX is suffering from a chronic illness. Is that true?
    B: Oh dear. It's very unfortunate if he is. I honestly don't know. However, I could contact his doctor and ask if he/she would be prepared to divulge that information. If so, I'll get you a copy of Mr XXX's latest medical report so you can see it for yourself.

    Of course, for the reasons that others have already given, the most likely response from B is "I have no idea. You will/would have to ask Mr XXX yourself."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    In fact, as reported recently, insurance companies in the UK can and do buy patients records from the NHS. Something that our current government is actively facilitating.
