"Lack of privacy for blood tests"

Mt elderly mother was sent upstairs to the first floor of Wishaw Health Centre recently to phlebotomy to have blood tests taken.
Instead of taking her into a room to have them done, the nurse/HCA performed the task in the large waiting room in full view of other patients. It left my mother embarrassed and feeling degraded.
This is totally unacceptable and has now left my mother scared to go for further blood tests.
