When visiting the outpatients department and being weighed before seeing the consultant, do people who are being weighed have to do so with the door open? People who are waiting to be weighed sit on seats about 7 foot away. The door is left open and everyone can hear the weight of the person being weighed.
When I was weighed I said that I did not want to know my weight to which the elderly lady weighing me replied "I can never understand why people always say I dont want to know my weight" This is possibly because the person being weighed really is not too keen on everyone knowing their weight!! Were is the dignity and respect for the patient. I was seen by a consultant at North tees hospital and was weighed behind a closed door.
