"Thought I was back in the 1970's!"

About: Hundens Lane Day Hospital

Anything else?

OMG just had my first physio session here and will not be going back.

I was led into a small room where a lady was already having a consultation with a podiatrist. At first I thought "oops we've come into the wrong room" but no, the physio cheerfully announced " sorry, we're room sharing today, If you'd like to get undressed".

We then proceeded to carry out a physio consultation three feet away from the podiatrist and her patient with only a curtain between us. I'm sure the lady patient did not want to hear about my hip problem and I certainly didn't want to hear about her feet!

This is completely unacceptable and to my knowledge goes against current NHS guidelines?

Dignity and Respect! - Ha!
