Introduction

Members may be asked by a patient or person accompanying them if they will allow them to make their own real-time recording of a diagnostic or screening examination or treatment.  This request may be to record the examination or treatment with a mobile telephone, record onto a DVD or memory device or utilise other digital or analogue recording media. With rapid developments in communications technology, the ways in which such recordings are able to be made are likely to become ever more varied. 

There have been instances where examinations or treatments have been recorded and posted to social media sites without the member’s consent. It can  then prove very difficult to have these removed, especially if there is no statement of policy placed in waiting rooms or otherwise publicly available.
