Patients in the United Kingdom are sharing photos and videos of providers without consent, according to a June 28, 2018, article from the BBC. Patients sometimes take these photos and videos and then ask others to rate the provider's attractiveness on social media, the article said. Patients are also sharing recordings of "terrible" general practitioner appointments, the article said. In most cases, the article said, patients share photos or videos from providers to show a child's first doctor visit or a pregnancy scan.
