My husband was called into a room and told to sit down in a chair with equipment in front of him.
My husband said hello to the person behind the desk.
The examination of his eyes took about 5 minutes and he was told there was no change and he could be seen again in 9 months.
As we were about to leave I said to the examining person that I would have expected them to have introduced themselves giving their name and position. Their first response was that their name was on the door. I said that wasn't acceptable, then they said they are meant to but they forgot. As we left they said that they hoped we had a good summer.
In the month after the death of Dr Kate Grainger and her work with 'hello my name is' I was very disappointed and angry that common courtesies are not always happening.
