Ed Sheeran was reportedly asked to sign autographs and pose for selfies by medical staff when he broke his arm.
The singer needed treatment after he broke his right wrist and left elbow last October, meaning he had to cancel some of his tour dates in Asia.
He was treated at Ipswich General Hospital, which has since started an inquiry into the treatment of high profile patients, the BBC reports.
A spokesman told the BBC the review covered ‘confidentiality, privacy of the patient and their loved ones and practical considerations’.
They said they regularly carried out reviews such as this and one had been due to be carried out in November anyway.
Metro.co.uk has contacted the hospital for comment.
