"lost sample"

About: Doncaster Royal Infirmary

My 4year old son has had diarrhea and sickness for 15days and has been very poorly, doctor requested a stool sample so I gave one to my gp and they sent off. I kept ringing to see if results were back finally after 7 days of waiting I rung my gp only for them to say theve got a message from hospital to say its been lost!! So now my son has to suffer even longer!!
