Was this meeting minuted and does his comments about paying for private treatment appear in those minutes? Does his comments about docking pay also appear in those minutes?

Were you accompanied by a CWU rep or a colleague? If not were you informed of your rights in respect of having a REp/Colleague in attendance?
Never go in to any meeting with a Royal Mail manager unless you are accompanied. This person should be able to take minutes of the meeting and the likelihood is that managers will not come out with this sort of dribble if you have someone on your side. They will only take chances on bullying you and giving conflicting or incorrect information if you are on your own. A manager cannot insist on you attending any meeting without you having the option to be accompanied and if this is anything to do with sickness or disciplinary meetings they should inform you of your rights.

Possible similar instance at our place, going back a couple of years now but a guy was on a long waiting list for a NHS physiotherapy appointment and RM paid for him to go straight away to one that they use, think at the time the postie was advised by the rep that he couldn't really refuse as RM we're doing their utmost to get him fit for work and if he refused the treatment then stopping his sick pay could be an option.

the difference here is Royal Mail were prepared to pay for him to get fit, not the manager personally.
