About: The Great Western Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

While staying at GWH I had a very uncomfortable stay as I wasn't able to get any privacy unless I had a staff member in my space with me. If I had closed my curtains to sleep I would then wake up to find the patient next to me had got the staff to fully open them and neither of them asked me if i was okay with it. I am not old but I feel should have been allowed to have my privacy when I wanted it and staff should have acknowledged that as well.
