Can I make an audio record of a meeting.


Likes # 0

I am going through a protracted complaint process with my local health board and things have take a slight turn in my favour. Following an article in my local evening paper where the health board were praising the complaints procedure which seemingly makes it easier to file a complaint, better response times,and the fact that they now had in place a very efficient nurse director who was keen to deal with patients directly. The article seems to give the impression that this appointment is relatively new where in fact she was there a couple of years ago when I first made the complaint.

As the article reawakened the deep anger that I have for my health board,the way that my complaint has been handle and d,dare I say it the dirty tricks that have been used to try and persuade me that my complaint is without merit.Anyway I fired off an email leaving the complaints department in no doubt that I thought the article was a load of whitewash and that I was intending to give another side to the evening paper.

Fair play to the complaints department I received an acknowledgment informing me that my comments would be passed on. a day later I received another email stating that my file had been reviewed and that mistakes had indeed been made in my treatment for cancer and in the way my complaint was handled.

I have now received a further email suggesting a meeting which is where the post title comes in. I do not trust the health board and wonder what are my legal responsibilities in respect of recording the meeting should it go ahead?

I intend to first seek clarification on what will be on the agenda, who will be at this meeting, whether minutes will be kept and whether it would be wise to take a witness of some sort to the proceedings?

My apologies for the lengthy post.
