P_IG_22 Clinical Photography and Video Recording

Clinical photography and video recording plays an essential role within Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS) and this policy has been developed to ensure that all photography undertaken by staff conforms to current legislation and other organisational policies:

  • Consent to Treatment Policy
  • Access to Health Records Policy
  • Clinical Records Management Policy
  • Data Protection and Confidentiality Policy
  • Mental Capacity Act (2005) Policy
  • Safeguarding Children Policy
  • Information Security Policy
  • Network Security Policy
  • Information Risk & Privacy Impact Assessment Policy

Clinical photography and video recordings are a valuable part of assessing and evidencing a patient's condition. They are beneficial in areas such as tissue viability to demonstrate that the condition of a wound has improved, or in areas such as physiotherapy and speech and language therapy to demonstrate improvements of a particular condition over time.
