"Out of hours GP service"

About: Lister Hospital

Please pass my thanks to the doctor and reception, for their extremely kind and courteous attention last Sunday afternoon 27th April 2014. My only constructive criticism is that I was surprised it was not possible to send the urine sample I provided to the path lab. As a result I had to visit my local GP the next day, whilst feeling extremely unwell, to provide a further sample for testing. Regardless I have also had to cancel a bladder biopsy scheduled for tomorrow at the QE2 I have entered 'Don't Know' to the dept visited as I presume GP Out of Hours is separate to A&E?

Response from Lister Hospital

Although located at the Lister hospital, the out-of-hours GP service is run by Hertfordshire Urgent Care and not us. Which is why they couldn't pass on a pathology test. But we'll pass on your appreciation of the out-of-hours service to HUC.
