Aimed at families, carers and people who use health and care services, the leaflet sets out some of the things they can consider if they are thinking of using recording equipment, as well as explaining other steps they can take to raise concerns. The Commission hopes that hope this information will help people to understand what using equipment such as a hidden camera or sound recorder may achieve, what they can do, and who they can turn to for help.
