"Lack of privacy / cramped conditions"

About: Sunderland Royal Hospital

The temporary A&E set up is very poor in terms of privacy/dignity for patients.

You could both see and hear patients being treated.

I appreciate that it is undergoing renovations but surely that should not affect patient care standards.
