Response from Leeds PCT

Message from the Patient Relations Manager at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.

I am sorry to hear of your concerns. Unfortunately I have been unable to determine from your comments which particular clinical area your partner was cared for and therefore I have been unable to address these with the individual manager concerned.

Should you wish to discuss these issues personally please contact the Patient and Advice Liaison Service at the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust on 0113 2067168.
