"Horrific experience"

About: Royal United Hospital

I was admitted to the RUH in 2015. The consultant I saw made some nasty insinuations about my personal life to my family behind my back and told them things that were absolutely confidential. When you are in severe pain it is not nice to have your family question you about how many people you are sleeping with, especially when you're in a happy, long-term relationship and have only ever had one partner (which I made clear to the consultant). I'm absolutely appalled.
