Due to long term illness I have visisted Aberdeen Royal Infirmary serveral times, and on quite a few of those occasions there's been staff present during examinations, procedures and consultation that haven't introduced themselves.
Sometimes these staff members has just hung about, other times they've just sat there looking.
I'm sure I'm not the only person made to feel uncomfortable due to this. Why are they there? Are they in training? Is it for my protection? Has the medical staff I'm seeing had complaints, and now need a second person in the room?
All staff present should introduce themselves by name, and position/reason for being there.
