    I think you have to be careful as your not allowed to use a secret recording and could have your entire claim revoked or something like that. I'm not an expert.  I jsut looked into it for my own f2f assesment.  
    On the positive side you have the recording and can confidently and fully challenge the lies told. It's a good reference to have to make your appeal, but get some advice before you decide to use the recording to challenge the lies. 
    It's so shocking what's happening to people.

    Read this http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-41581060 and then see if you can get it independently transcribed to start with. If you can’t then you’ll struggle to get it into evidence. “Independent” does not mean your friend down the rise who’s a touch typist and can use headphones. It means a professional transcription company.

    However, your next step should be to get face to face advice. Proving that a HCP report contains inaccuracies is enough to ensure it’s given less weight as evidence but you still won’t qualify for PIP unless you have good anecdotal evidence as to what points you score and why. 

    I recently came across someone who did the same as you. The HCP report wilfully misinterpreted nearly everything they said but when I assessed their likely entitlement they wouldn’t have scored more than 4 points on daily living or 2 on mobility. Get advice. Good advice would have prevented a futile claim in the first place.
