"In this day and age.."

About: Leeds General Infirmary

Anything else?

When registering in A and E, I was asked if I was married, single or other. I explained civil partnered. Person on reception said 'we haven't got that' and put 'other'. Is this for real? C21? Dreadful. So my question is, why ask? What is the point? If for monitoring purposes/ equality reasons, this can't cover adequately.
