Secret filming – reputation management

In recent years, a number of hospitals, care homes and schools have been the target of secret filming, all in the name of investigative journalism, with the invasion of privacy being justified as being in the public interest.

The consequences of such exposure can be enormous, affecting the reputation of healthcare professionals, teachers and care providers, as well as potentially vulnerable patients and students.

We have experience of, and are able to advise on, how best to protect your organisation, employees and service users in relation to the issues which arise in connection with secret filming.

If you or organisation has been the victim of secret filming, we are on hand to guide you through the process to prevent or limit the public broadcast of unauthorised footage. We will help you manage the media consequences of any filming which may have taken place with or without your permission.
