Question: Do doctors hug their patients?

In terms of medico-legal advice, although the GMC makes it clear in its guidance that doctors mustnt use their professional position to pursue a sexual or improper relationship with a patient or someone close to them, it doesnt mention anything specific on hugging.

Is it right for doctors to feel for their patients?
