Response from Leicester General Hospital

Hi Chrissy We are truly sorry to learn of our son-in-law’s diagnosis and completely recognise what a difficult time this must be. Are you able to provide us with further details as we would like to investigate this further? We would need the name of your son-in-law, his address, date of birth and the name of his consultant (if you know it). Kind regards, Communications Team Leicester’s Hospitals
