"Lacking in dignity"

About: Breast Screening Unit University Hospital Of North Tees

(as the patient),

In the unit there were no gowns available. It was implied I was dressed Inappropriately as I had a dress on and not a top/shirt. I was asked to undress to waist. No gown available or offered. Asked to move to screening room where radiographer stood behind a screen asking me questions whilst I was standing bare from the waist up with my dress tied around my waist!

The whole process whilst efficient in time was completely lacking in dignity and privacy.
