I had an appointment at Ayr Hospital and was rather taken aback when the receptionist, after confirming all my contact details, asked me for my nationality. I answered that I was British and this was followed up with another question – did I have any other nationality?
I was a bit stumped for an answer to this, there was an ambulance driver or crew member nearby who heard this exchange and said I should just say I was Scottish. What made the whole thing more offensive is that whilst I was there the receptionist must have seen at least a dozen other people, I heard her confirm their contact details but not one other person was asked about their nationality.
