Dear Gaelle

Sorry to hear you are having such a tough time, in pain and frustrated by waits and delays. In order for me to look into your care pathway in a bit more detail I need some further information.

Perhaps at your convenience you could get in touch and I will see what I can find out.

My details are 01463 704722 or maimie.Thompson@nhs.net

Thanks
