Response from Grace Oldfield, Patient Involvement Manager, Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust

Dear Laura, thank you for taking the time to place this posting and please accept my most sincere apologies for your experience and that of your son at our hospital. I was most concerned to hear that you have had to chase to get your son’s results and that communication between staff has fallen below what you expected and what we strive to achieve.

I would be very grateful if you would take a little more of your time to contact our Patient Services department at complaints@rothgen.nhs.uk or telephone 01709 424461, to allow us to undertake a thorough investigation of your experience. This will allow us to take appropriate steps to ensure no other patient can have such an unacceptable experience and should be grateful if you would please accept my most sincere apologies.

With best wishes,

Grace
