“How would you respond if the Government mandated that CCTV should be installed in every room in your house, including your bedroom, with the aim of promoting your health and protecting you from harm? You might be outraged or even set to the streets to protest. We all have a fundamental right to privacy.”
Those are the words of Alexis Quinn, our Restraint Reduction Network Manager and autism campaigner, who will be discussing what it means to follow a rights-based approach to surveillance at our joint webinar with the British Institute of Human Rights on Tuesday, November 2, 12-1pm.
Speakers will include Alexis Quinn and Carlyn Miller from the British Institute of Human Rights. We’ll also hear from:
- Clair Brown, National Enforcement Oversight Manager from the Care Quality Commission (CQC)
- Andrea Attree whose daughter is in an assessment and treatment unit (ATU)
- Salli Midgely, Director of Quality for Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust.
As part of this webinar, new resources that can help individuals and organisations take a rights based approach to surveillance will be distributed. These resources can be downloaded ahead of the webinar at: bit.ly/RRNsurveillanceNews
There will also be a chance to explore key ethical and legal questions that impact organisations’ abilities to uphold people’s privacy and human rights.
