The room provided for telehealth appointments is not situated in a way that caters for patient privacy. The room is located next to and adjoining the reception at the entrance of the hospital. It is separated by a glass door which allows all conversations, on either side of the door to be heard by both parties - hospital administration employees and patient/doctor (appointments). I do not feel confident sharing intimate, private and sometimes embarrassing symptoms with my doctor knowing that I can be overheard by receptionists, hospital volunteers and passer-bys.
Please re-think the location of the telehealth appointment room to a more suitable place that caters for patients privacy.
