A patient who claimed he had legal rights to record his consultation with a psychiatrist lost a Supreme Court of NSW case this month, with the judges saying a recording could undermine the doctor’s assessment and even harm the patient. 

The court case was unusual, involving a medicolegal assessment of the patient, who claimed his PTSD had been exacerbated by his wrongful arrest by NSW Police.
