"Trying to contact the Orthopaedics department"

About: Leicester General Hospital

I have been trying to contact the General Orthopaedic department via the trust switchboard and the direct line number (several times now) as I have lost my appointment letter and I want to confirm my time and date for my next consultation, but it keeps ringing out. Having had a distal femoral osteotomy just over 12 months ago (which is taking me a long time to get over) I don't want to get a DNA against my name as I can't afford to miss the appointment. Also this 'leave a comment' page is very frustrating; if you click out the box it loses all your text. I have had to type it on an email and then cut and paste it in.

Very annoying on both counts.
