    he prob wanted to see  to prove  ur claim maybe . i know with my male doctor if  he his gonna be looking at any of my bits n bobs hes always said would u like me to get a nurse to come in and witness what hes doing or would i prefer a female doctor  tough question u should of refused and asked for a female if u was uncomftable or had someone else present

    I don't think he had the right to ask because of him being a male but at the same time they still should have sent a female to visit you in your home if they were wanting that proof I would still try and get in touch with citizens advice to see what they say about it or you could make a complaint about it aswel to the company who done the home visit.
