Response from Scunthorpe General Hospital

Hello, thank you for your feedback, it's wonderful to hear you and your husband were so well supported at what probably felt like a very anxious time. Your comments and thanks have been shared with the teams involved, and also the individual you've referred to in the path lab. Kind regards, Sarah Mainprize
