As a training aid, doctors use videotaped consultations to assess their performance. You may be asked if it is acceptable to you that your consultation is videotaped. If you agree you will be asked to sign a consent form. If you are not happy about being videoed ask for the camera to be switched off at any time.
Physical examinations will be performed off camera, although the sound recording will remain on. The tapes are used for training purposes only. Confidentiality is always maintained; the videotapes are stored in a secure place and erased after viewing.
