Response from Northwick Park Hospital

Dear Sir/Madam

I was very sorry to learn of your recent visit to the A&E department which necessitated a night's stay for treatment.

I would first of all like to thank you letting us know how pleased you were with the care you received during your admission, your kinds words are very much appreciated.

I was however concerned to learn of the difficulties you experienced in obtaining a copy of your discharge summary.

Should you still require a copy of your discharge letter and details of your follow up care then please contact our Patient Relations team on LNWH-tr.patientrelations@nhs.net and we will be able to help.

Kind regards

Patient Relations Team
