Original feedback for

Birmingham and Midland Eye Centre (BMEC)

Staff don't respect privacy

While being seen to by an Eye Doctor at the Eye Centre with my partner, 3 Other Doctor's and Nurses entered the examination room without permission or even knocking. One other Doctor even discussed another patient's examination while in the room! This is appalling and against Doctor/Patient confidentiality standards of practise, as well as the NHS code of conduct. At the very least it's rude. Can not believe this is acceptable.
