What is Privacy and Dignity in Health and Social Care?

Privacy and dignity are immensely important to us all throughout our lives, whatever our age or physical or mental ability. Being able to maintain privacy and dignity has a profound effect on self-esteem, confidence and the ability to function within society. Invasion of privacy, or an attack on dignity, produces different reactions in different people – it may be annoyance or embarrassment, or a feeling of being ignored or considered irrelevant. Whatever the reaction, it will be negative and damaging. For this reason, it’s absolutely essential that workers in health and social care do all they can to ensure that those in their care are protected from these damaging effects of loss of privacy or dignity.
