"doctors secretary"

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

Told to contact Doctors secretary if pain gets worse. Did contact them but they were not helpful, just saying they had me in their diary. I need to contact them again but have lost name and phone number. The site for Blackburn Royal only shows the consultant's secretary at Burnley. No trace of a number or name at Blackburn. Struggling to find details. Rung Burnley who put me to switchboard. They don't know. Left message on answerphone for Burnley secretary as they did have a number but not a name. Can this information be added to websites to make it easier for patients please
