"Lost my personal data!"

I was referred to Leigh Infirmary for sleep apnoea issues, this has now been moved to Blackpool as I needed to see an ENT specialist. I dropped off results from an overnight sleep test which that I collected by hand from Leigh and handed them over to the ENT Dept. nurse who said that this would be handed over to the consultant's secretary. I have spoken to the slightly unhelpful secretary who said that the information is not in that dept. I have left a message with the Respiratory Dept. and I am waiting for them to get back to me within 24 hours! The status is: I will have to have a redo a test that I have already had 5 minths ago, there will be results from this test that will be similar, if not exact, to the ones I handed over to the ENT Dept., there is personal data with my name etc. on it lost in the hospital somewhere. Will someone please take responsibility for this issue and find it then apply common sense so that I do not have to undergo the same test again?
